Research Capacity Building Webinar Series

This webinar will describe how the Morehouse School of Medicine Prevention Research Center’s research and prevention initiatives are implemented in direct response to priorities identified through a community-based, participatory research driven needs and assets assessment. Led by a community-majority coalition board, the assessment coupled city and state secondary data with primary survey data collected by and from community residents. The assessment informed and established a data-driven community-engaged research agenda, policy, systems, environmental change approaches, community-led grants and job creation leveraging neighborhood contexts and strengths.

Research Capacity Building Webinar Series

The Center presents its monthly Webinar Series to advance interdisciplinary community-engaged research, support programs and policies to better serve African American children and families, build research capacity and infrastructure to conduct research relevant to enhance ACF program and policy goals and communicate research findings to a broad audience of community leaders, practitioners, researchers, state and federal policymakers. Ultimately, these webinars will inform approaches to improve the health and well-being of African American children and families.
