THIS YEAR’S THEME: Health and Safety Across the Lifespan

COMMUNITY-DRIVEN RESEARCH DAY encourages collaborations between researchers and community based organizations (CBOs) and community groups who have questions that they are interested in answering about health and safety across the lifespan. Through an interactive poster session, CBOs and community groups will highlight their questions to CDRD participants, who will include area non-profits, community groups, public sector partners, and researchers from The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, The University of Pennsylvania, Temple University, Drexel University, and Jefferson University. CBOs, community groups, academic researchers, and students will be able to meet and discuss potential, mutually-beneficial collaborations.

CBOs and community groups interested in developing partnerships to conduct research are urged to participate in an interactive poster presentation that will highlight the organization’s/group’s mission, goals, and major accomplishments, as well as display questions that they are interested in answering about health and safety across the lifespan.

Submissions are due Wednesday, January 27, 2016 Friday, January 29, 2016.
