Community Outreach

Community Outreach is a Core function of the Center for Healthy Communities (CHC).  The community outreach initiatives of CHC include both health promotion and disease prevention activities. The Outreach Core uses community-based participatory approaches that engage various sectors of the population as active partners in its efforts to improve the overall health of the target communities. The community health advocate (CHA) program and Pipeline programs support the development of future health care providers and researchers and are both active programs of this division of CHC.  Through the efforts of this division the Center actively contributes to the NIMHD goals of:

 

  • Establishing novel effective partnerships with organizations and communities for conducting original and innovative cutting-edge research leading to improvements in minority health, the elimination of health disparities, or both; and
  • Establishing, enhancing or strengthening community engagement/outreach and institutional partnerships for improving minority health and the health of health disparity populations.
