Funders are increasingly encouraging the active engagement of patients, clinicians and stakeholders to ensure that the research answers questions important to patients and other stakeholders and that the research findings can be shared and implemented efficiently and effectively. The Center for Community Health (CCH) can help researchers, community-based clinicians, and/or community or patient groups to connect with each other.

Consult with CCH about strategies and assistance with brokering and building partnerships.
