Community Engagement – A Real-World Example


Rhonda Burgess, RN, BSN

CHC Manhattan Physicians Group Description:

This session aims to capture a real-world example of a collaborative, community-engaged research partnership. We hope that viewers are able to use these examples as a model in developing their own Community-Based Participatory Research (CPBR) projects.

The featured CBPR Project is entitled “Establishing a Community-Associated Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (CA-MRSA) Surveillance Network”, funded by: The Rockefeller University Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS); Pilot Grant and Administrative Supplement (NIH-NCATS Grant # 8-UL1-TR000043). This project is a collaboration between the Rockefeller University, multiple Community Health Centers (Urban health Plan, Manhattan Physicians Group 125th Street, Open Door Family Health Center, Hudson River Health Care, Brookdale Family Care Center, and Manhattan Physicians Group 95th Street), and multiple Practice Based Research Networks (Alliance of Chicago, Clinical Directors Network, Inc. of New York City and STAR-NET, San Antonio Texas). All members are engaged and participate onsite or virtually. This is a real-world example of a community-engaged research project: entitled “Engagement and Outreach to Barbershops and Beauty Salons for Education Outreach about Community-Associated Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (CA-MRSA)”. Clinician Rhonda Burgess, RN, BSN from CHC Manhattan Physicians Group explains development and implementation of the project. Sponsors:
