Community Health Takes Center Stage at C3 Event
More than 250 researchers, community stakeholders, and local policy makers met at Malcom X College for a symposium highlighting the contributions of community-academic partnerships.
The event was co-sponsored by Chicago’s three Clinical and Translational Science Award hubs, and the Chicago Consortium for Community Engagement (C3), a collaboration between the three hubs and Chicago Department of Public Health.
In addition to a keynote presentation and panel discussions, a poster session highlighted nearly 50 community-facing research efforts throughout Chicago.
NUCATS community partner Ever Thrive Illinois was recognized for research on pregnancy and postpartum experiences in the city.
Other poster award winners included Healthy Chicago Equity Zones, who won the Community Champion Award, Stephanie Torres, PhD, who won the Emerging Researcher Award, and Peace in Pilsen Initiative, who won the Trauma Informed Care Champion Award.
