Community Engagement Core

This core will optimize processes for each project and investigators to implement best practices including participatory research methods to engage with communities and partners especially for the UAB and UNC projects. Together with a community advisory board, they will collaborate with the projects to develop protocols, instruments, and best approaches for dissemination to communities.
