COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT CORE RESOURCE

The Irving Institute’s Community Engagement Core Resource (CECR) promotes health research that contributes to the health and well-being of our Upper Manhattan communities. CECR fosters community partnerships and participation in health research through educational training, funding, and outreach opportunities. We offer services and resources to fosters community involvement in health research.

CECR collaborates with several Irving Institute Resources including the Biomedical Informatics Resource, the Clinical Research Resource, the Regulatory Knowledge and Ethics Resource, as well as other CUMC centers and multi-sector stakeholders in NORTHERN Manhattan.

CECR fosters community-engaged research between CUMC researchers, multi-sector stakeholders, and the community at-large by:
  • (1) Providing educational, training, and funding opportunities
  • (2) Developing health-literate resources and services to facilitate recruitment and retention of research participants
  • (3) Providing informatics tools to promote community outreach, social networking, and research dissemination to community stakeholders
  • (4) Providing off-campus space for health research, education, and promotion activities
  • (5) Linking community residents to health research, information, and services
