Community engagement in research
Over the past several weeks, ten local organizations enhanced their capacity to develop research projects that address health issues facing their communities.
The Clinical and Translational Science Institute and Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota have formed a first-of-its-kind group dedicated to improving the health of Minnesota's children.
On November 16, the group will host the first in a series of Research in Child Health Dinner Forums.
CTSI's Office of Community Engagement for Health will join the Minnesota Rural Health Conference on June 27-28 in Duluth. The conference, hosted by the Minnesota Department of Health, serves as a forum for rural health care providers and researchers to exchange ideas and share innovations around four areas of focus: access, community, quality and value.
Medical School Assistant Professor Aaron Kelly, PhD, and Jennifer Abuzzahab, MD, Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota, received a Community Collaborative Grant from CTSI in 2010 to study the effects of the drug exenatide on extreme pediatric obesity. On Monday, February 4, the encouraging results of that study were published online in JAMA Pediatrics.
We would like to congratulate the individuals from the 11 organizations that participated in the inaugural cycle of the Community Research Institute! Everyone who participated received a certificate and was recognized for all of their hard work. The following is a list of organizations that participated in this year's institute.
