Event description

Description

Did you know that it takes an average of 17 years before the community benefits from health research?

Lack of communication and collaboration between academia and the community are important barriers in the translation of science into practice. The practice lag in dissemination and implementation can be even bigger for foreign-born communities as the interventions may not be adapted to their needs.

In partnership with the Immigrant Service Providers Network, the Center for Community Health Partnership and Research at the Institute for Public Health launches the inaugural Pitch Partners. At this event, service providers working with immigrants and refugees will pitch health-related project ideas to Washington University experts and advanced-level students in pursuit of partnerships.

Our expert panel will judge 2-minutes elevator pitches. Six service providers will pitch a project idea including slides or visual medium, followed by 6 minutes of Q&A from our expert panel. The last 30 minutes of the event will be dedicated to questions from the audience and networking.

Time: 4:30PM to 6:30PM (light dinner provided)
