The Community Engagement Institute (CEI) is an annual full-day symposium focused on issues related to health equity and social justice. The CEI examines the importance of why and how community engagement and collaboration are effective in social/behavioral research and essential in community building practices.  Sponsored by the UAB Center for Clinical and Translational Sciences (UAB CCTS), the CEI is held in Birmingham each October. Starting in 2017, the University of South Alabama, a UABCCTS partner institution, hosts a remote site with a livestream of the keynote speakers from Birmingham.
