These meetings are informal, with a specific topic, facilitator, and practice-building purpose to guide discussion. They are intended to let you share with and learn from your colleagues and grow in the profession.
From 5:30 to 6:00 we will gather and introduce ourselves.
At 6:00 we’ll start our program: Applications and Controversies of Community-Based Participatory Research
Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR) as a health research tradition originated in Paulo Freire’s work in Brazilian favelas and his prolific writing beginning with Pedagogy of the Oppressed (1968). Applications of developing critical consciousness about root causes have propelled a wide variety of cultural groups to produce public health outcomes throughout the U.S. and many other countries. Community control over the research dynamic, ownership of data, public presentation have greatly enriched results in a variety of public health topics.
Come to the presentation of a brief synopsis of the history of CBPR with applications and controversies.
