Anyone who has not registered may still take advantage of the discounted full registration fees that have been extended until November 4, 2005.

The ASPH/CDC Examining Community-Institutional Partnerships for Prevention Research Group has been invited by APHA to offer a continuing education institute (CEI) on CBPR partnerships at the meeting. The CEI is offered in partnership with the APHA Caucus on Community-Based Public Health.

The CEI is the first part of a two-part CEI on CBPR. The first CEI, entitled “Community-Based Participatory Research (Part I): Developing and Sustaining Partnerships for Community-based Participatory Research,” will be presented on Saturday afternoon, December 10th, 2005. The second CEI, entitled “Community-Based Participatory Research (Part 2): Working with Communities to Interpret and Analyze Data and Get to Outcomes,” is scheduled for Sunday morning, December 11th, 2005.

For more information about the CEI and to register, please visit Please note that it is possible to register and pay for the CEIs as “stand alone” events without registering for the APHA annual meeting.
