Community-Based Research Network

Mission of the Community Based Research Network:

· Expand the reach and capacity of the Center to achieve goals
· Facilitate research collaborations across sectors, organizations (academic institutions, community organizations, clinics) and regions

The CBRN network consists of community stakeholders who are interested in partnering with researchers or who are currently partnering with researchers in projects related to center mission. Traditionally this type of collaboration has been siloed, but with the community serving as our guiding voice, our hope is to develop more of a bi-directional relationship.
