The Meharry Community Engagement Core connects community members and organizations with Meharry researchers to conduct research and share results that will improve health for communities that experience the poorest health outcomes.
To eradicate health and healthcare disparities through long-term, collaborative, mutually beneficial community/academic research partnership.
The mission of the Meharry Community Engagement Core is to “combine the passion, knowledge, and skills of community partners and academic researchers to carry out research, share research results, and put into practice research findings that advance health equity and improve health for communities that experience the poorest health outcomes.”
Apart from efforts to increase community capacity to engage in research and partner with them in advancing their own health-related priorities, the Community Engagement Core provides direct support to Meharry researchers, including:
A Community Advisory Board, including representatives form health advocacy, health equity, and faith-based organizations, provides guidance to the Community Engagement Core and serves as one avenue for researchers to get community feedback about their research and explore potential community-academic research partnerships.
For any inquires contact, Community Engagement Core Director, Stephania Miller-Hughes PhD MS, firstname.lastname@example.org or Co-Director, Leah Alexander PhD MPH, email@example.com or Program Manager, Mariah Chambers MHA, firstname.lastname@example.org
