Annual IIMS Community Engagement Symposium

2016 IIMS Community Engagement Symposium: Engaging Patients, Families, and Communities in All Phases of Translational Research

2016 IIMS community engagement symposium

Translational science describes how research discoveries are translated from basic science, to clinical practice, to public health benefit.  This symposium addressed methods for developing and enhancing community and academic partnerships for the translation of research.  The goal of the 2016 IIMS Community Engagement Symposium was to share examples and perceptions of how community and academic partnerships can be used as a strategy to translate research.  Together, patients, families, communities and researchers learned how we can work together to design, implement and share quality research that has far-reaching effects on important community health outcomes.
