PRCHN seeks faculty members to partner with community leaders for research

The Prevention Research Center for Health Neighborhoods (PRCHN) received a National Institutes of Health award to launch the Partners in Education, Evaluation and Research (PEER) Training Program, an 18-month mentored training program to increase research capacity in community organizations and strengthen community/academic partnerships to better facilitate translational research. The program is in the developmental stages and won’t be fully functional until 2012.

Now, PRCHN seeks faculty members to be partners with fellows from local organizations who are interested in conducting health research with a university partner.

Faculty partners will be matched with the research interest of the fellow and will also be able to collaborate with the fellow and their organization for mutually beneficial research.
