Join Sarah Brewer, PhD MPA (Department of Family Medicine) and Farduus Ahmed, MSW (Department of Psychiatry, Immigrant and Refugee Mental Health Clinic) from the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus for this Mini-MARS webinar.
Engaging refugee and immigrant communities in research is essential to ensuring relevant and rigorous research findings. This talk will discuss reasons for and approaches to engaging immigrant and refugee communities, through community advisory boards and other partnership models. In addition, we will discuss the ways academic researchers and community members can work as co-equal partners to identify research priorities, design research projects, and conduct and disseminate relevant research to improve immigrant/refugee health. Finally, we will highlight funding opportunities to specifically support engagement in research.
After this webinar, attendees will be able to:
1. Identify 2-3 models of community engagement in refugee and immigrant communities
2. Discuss approaches to engagement and capacity building in immigrant and refugee health research
3. Understand PCORI as one funding source for engaged research
The Mini-MARS webinars are an extension of the Short Course on MARS, an in-person training offered annually at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
