Building Community Capacity: A Community-Engaged Approach to COVID-19 Testing in African-American Churches – Feb 3

Posted by Community-Campus Partnerships for Health (CCPH) on January 25, 2022

Community-based participatory research (CBPR) is an innovative approach to combating health inequities through robust partnerships, community mobilization, and responsiveness to community-identified needs and assets. This webinar will describe a faith-based partnership that utilizes principles of CBPR to combat COVID-19 among African-Americans in Kansas City, MO. We will explore best practices for engaging community members in the research process as well as the role that faith-based organizations can serve in COVID-19 testing and prevention.

This webinar will highlight the work of University of Missouri – Kansas City (UMKC) School of Medicine in partnership with the Clergy Response Network (CRN) and the Calvary Community Outreach Network (CCON) to deliver COVID-19 testing in African-American churches. The project is part of the NIH-funded RADx-UP network, a consortium of over 100 community-based COVID-19 testing projects across the U.S. Learn more about RADx-UP.
