Creating the Future We Want to Be: Transformation through Partnerships

Posted by on August 10, 2009

Community-Campus Partnerships for Health is delighted to announce our 11th Conference, May 12-15, 2010 in Portland, Oregon.

The conference, “Creating the Future We Want to Be: Transformation through Partnerships” promises to be CCPH’s best yet as hundreds of community and campus partners convene for 4 days of skill-building, networking and agenda-setting!  Whether you are new to community-based participatory research (CBPR), service-learning or community-academic partnerships and looking for basics to get started, or have been involved for years and seeking more advanced knowledge and connections, this is one conference you will not want to miss!

Joining us as a major partner is the Northwest Health Foundation in Portland, founded in 1997 to advance the health of the people of Oregon and southwest Washington.  The Foundation explicitly identifies CBPR as one of six issue areas it invests in and views it as “as a tool to generate meaningful information about community health and build the capacity of groups united by common challenges to organize and advocate for change.”

The conference call for proposals will be released shortly. Watch the CCPH homepage at for the latest conference details!
