Chicago Consortium for Community Engagement C3


C3 invites abstracts from public health professionals, students, community partners, and investigators to present results of scientific research, program evaluation, policy analysis and lessons learned from community engaged research projects during the “Building Health Equity throughout Chicago through Community Engaged Research” Symposium, Friday, October 10, 2014 8a – 2p. 

Poster sessions give presenters an opportunity to discuss their project and exchange ideas with colleagues and new audiences. The purpose is to visually stimulate interest on collaborative research approaches to health research. We hope it will promote conversations and networking among session attendees.

We encourage you to present a poster on your community-engaged partnership process or research. The posters may present findings from your research or describe your ongoing study. Submissions can focus on 1) community-academic research projects (in process or completed with findings); or 2) stories/lessons learned from partnership formation or support- both challenges faced and strategies for success.

Instructions for Submitting Poster Abstracts

Include the following in the abstract: 

- Background: Describe the context, importance and objective(s) of the study. Also describe how you developed your academic / community partnership.

- Methods: Describe methods/strategies used including study design or partnership development, setting, population, program or intervention, outcome measures, and analytic approach.

- Results: Describe your results or lessons learned in sufficient detail to support your conclusions. Tables, graphs and figures are encouraged.

- Conclusions: State the implications of your findings for communities, clinical practice, research, education, or policy. Also share next steps for this research/partnership.

Other things to consider:

Authorship—academic and community partners actively participating in the project design or processes should be recognized as authors of your poster.

Maximum size of poster display: 3’x5’

Please submit abstracts to Chartay T. Robinson, crobins1@bsd.uchicago.edu by Friday, September 26, 2014.

 For examples of posters and abstracts feel free to contact Chartay.

The Community Partners Integration Workgroup (formed as part of the former national CTSA community engagement consortium) is currently fielding a  national survey of community partners who are involved in research. This is the first national survey of its kind and a great opportunity to get further info about the needs, interests, concerns of community partners who are involved in research (at CTSAS or in other ways). It would be great to have strong participation from Chicago community partners. The workgroup recently decided to extend the survey deadline to later this fall.
