Community Research Partnership Core

About Us

The Community Research Partnership Core is a number of innovative, integrated activities that partner with Cleveland communities in order to enhance both community based research and community involvement with designing, conducting and disseminating research. Our goal is to teach researchers, educators, community organizations, and community residents how to appreciate, design and conduct research.

Project Highlights

Cultural Competency Neighborhood Tour a SUCCESS!

On May 19, 2010, over 80 researchers came together to visit 3 Cleveland neighborhoods - Stockyards, Hough, and Asiatown to learn more about the geography, health issues, and leadership of those communities. Presentations were made by local leaders who talked about the health issues affecting those in the community as well as community efforts to encourage healthy living.
