27th Annual Minority Health Conference

Community-Based Research and Practice:
How Do We Make it Work for Everyone?

The William and Ida Friday Continuing Education Center, The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

February 24, 2006

Featuring the 8th Annual William T. Small, Jr. Keynote Lecture by Meredith Minkler, Dr.P.H.


In order to create better health outcomes it is essential to have community participation to impact the public's health. The composition of communities has changed vastly in the last 30 years and researchers and communities have to both learn how to strengthen their relationships with one another. As communities change, there is a need to adapt to the communities' cultural norms and values. As researchers and communities continue to work together there is a greater need to increase the community buy-in and ownership of research. In addition communities should be able to use the data gathered so that they can develop their own community driven solutions. This conference hopes to create a dialogue about the success and challenges of researchers and community participants working together.
