Ethical Protections in Community-Engaged Research

Ethical Protections in Community-Engaged Research

Community-engaged research is a new model for conducting health-related scientific research, that is unfortunately not reflected in the human research participants training programs available in the US today. Human research training programs designed for community members are needed.

This workshop is primarily designed for members of community-based organizations interested in and/or actively engaged in health-related research, but university-based faculty and staff who conduct community-engaged research are also encouraged to attend. Workshop material will be presented via lecture and small and large group discussion. Appropriate video and internet resources will also be used to enhance written materials. All participants will be provided with course materials and links to additional resources. The Office of Community Engagement for Health is working in collaboration with SoLaHmo Partnership for Health and Wellness to offer this workshop.

The workshop will be held Saturday, April 21, 2012 at La Clinica in St. Paul, MN from 9:30 am - 3:00 pm. It is a free event that requires no registration. For more information contact Andrea Leinberger-Jabari at lein0072@umn.edu.
