Registration is now open for individuals interested in attending the 13th Annual Community Driven Research Day (CDRD), focused on the theme of "Advancing Community Health and Safety Through Partnerships." The event will take place in-person at 9:30 a.m. on January 26, 2023 at Drexel University's Gerri C. LeBow College of Business.

CDRD encourages collaborations between researchers and community-based organizations (CBOs) and community groups who have research questions that they are interested in answering, specifically those that address social determinants of health.

A panel of past CDRD awardees will present about their collaboration. To open the event, a panel of past CDRD awardees and community-driven research experts will present on effective community-academic collaborations. Following the panel discussion, CBO's and community groups will participate in an interactive poster session to highlight their research questions of interests to CDRD participants, who will include area non-profits, community groups, public sector partners, and researchers from Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, The University of Pennsylvania, Temple University, Drexel University, Thomas Jefferson University, and the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. CBOs, community groups, academic researchers, and students will be able to meet and discuss potential, mutually beneficial collaborations.

Following CDRD, a competitive pilot grant program supports partnerships formed as a result of participation in CDRD between academic researchers and community-based organizations. The grants are limited to faculty of the aforementioned academic institutions working in collaboration with community partners who present at CDRD.

All non-presenting individuals interested in attending Community-Driven Research Day should register by Monday, January 23, 2023.
