Transforming Partnerships: Community Engagement for Health Summit
Wednesday, September 21st, 2011
8:00am - 2:00pm
Minnesota Landscape Arboretum
The Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) of the University of Minnesota is embarking on a new mission to create meaningful connections among researchers and the community to reach toward our mission: improving health by accelerating discoveries into practice. To this end, the Office of Community Engagement for Health (OCEH) of the CTSI would like to invite you to participate in this one day summit to begin the dialogue on how the Community and University can co-design strategies and activities to transform the research process.
The overall goal of this Summit is to gather community advisory members, university engagement faculty and staff, and others interested in furthering this goal to celebrate our growing partnerships and discuss recommendations for supporting engagement between the Community and University to improve health. This meeting will include some plenary-style presentation and small group working sessions.
This event is free, but you must register BEFORE Tuesday, September 13th 2011.
