Community Engagement

The Community Engagement Core creates strong relationships between VCU researchers and the Greater Richmond community. Successful health research is dependent upon this collaboration, both in terms of translating evidence-based best practices into the community and identifying community-based needs to drive research efforts. The core seeks to improve awareness among researchers of the health priorities in the community as well as to educate community members about the process of research and their vital role within this process.
