Community Engagement Studios

Community Engagement Studios are being held virtually through March, 2021.

The UR CTSI and Center for Community Health & Prevention can help researchers obtain project-specific input from community and patient stakeholders to enhance research design, implementation, and dissemination. Our Community Engagement Studios, run by a team of community engagement experts, provide a structured approach to directly engaging members of the community for their guidance and input on specific research studies.
