Chicago CTSAs for Community Engagement (C3) Events

C3 is comprised of Northwestern University, the University of Chicago, and the University of Illinois at Chicago. C3's mission is to knit together Chicago CTSA research efforts that respectfully involve community partners in every stage, from project design through data collection and analysis to results interpretation. C3 is committed to finding new ways to disseminate information about research findings. During 2009, C3 is holding three half-day seminars addressing topics important to network members and others interested in improving the health in Chicago.
