The Columbia Community Partnership for Health (CCPH) is an initiative of the Irving Institute for Clinical and Translational Research, Columbia University Medical Center, and New York Presbyterian Hospital.Featuring:
- a bilingual health information library for community use;
- computers with free Internet access to health related information;
- interview/exam rooms for research purposes;
- a conference room for health promotion and disease prevention lectures, forums, discussions, and other related events
CCPH was created to support equitable research partnerships and to provide dedicated space in the community for health information dissemination. Dissemination activities are based on principles of health literacy. Inadequate health literacy is a major public health challenge which directly and indirectly impacts on the health of our communities.
Who can use the center?
The Center is open to all community residents free of charge.
The Center is open to community groups and investigators. To use the space, they must fill out a registration form available from Center staff. The Center can be used for meeting space or research studies by appointment.
Do I have to join to be able to use the center?
There is no membership required to use the Center. To better serve consumers, we will ask guests to sign in and list the reasons for their visit.
Is it a clinic?
It is not a clinic and there will be no physicians or nurses on staff. We do have an exam room which will feature an exam table but this is for research that will occur at the site.

I have a research study and I would like to provide information at the center and use the center to recruit. How do I go about doing this?
Please contact the Center to set up a time to meet and discuss your project. We are more than happy to provide health literate/consumer friendly materials on your study to the community in the center.
The Community Engagement Core Resource (CECR) leads capacity building efforts via educational, training, and funding opportunities to enhance the quality and quantity of community engaged research at CUMC. The CECR is based in Washington Heights at its new center, Columbia Community Partnership for Health, a multiuse/multipurpose communal space to support the health-related research interests of investigators, community-based organizations, and community residents. All of CCPH’s resources, including the health library, research space, and meeting facilities are free to CUMC investigators and Washington Heights community members.
