Community Based Participatory Research in Public Health programs

Posted by on July 29, 2005

On May 9 and 10, the Education Committee of the Association of Schools of Public Health held a meeting to discuss responses to the Institute of Medicine’s recent reports on the future of public health. One of the topics for discussion was CBPR, as the IOM recommends that CBPR be incorporated into the Master’s of Public Health curriculum.

A panel of presentation on CBPR helped to focus the discussion. Powerpoints corresponding to the titles/presenters below are available at
