2021 CE Symposium Program

Theme: Upholding Diversity and Equity for Health Research

Plenary Speaking Team

  • Gilbert Gee, PhD - Professor, Dept. of Community Health Sciences - UCLA Fielding School of Public Health
  • Shawn Malia-Kana'iaupuni, PhD- Director and CEO - Partners in Development Foundation

Topic
Scientific translation describes the process of taking research discoveries from basic laboratory science, clinical practice, and community into interventions for public health benefit. Community engagement is an important element for the translation of research findings. This symposium will address how community-campus partnerships can engage for the successful conduct of health research while upholding diversity and equity.

Goals
Our goals are to showcase current projects within different phases of the translational spectrum for possible future collaborations; (2) to identify methods for engaging the community in all phases of research; and (3) to build the capacity of community members and researchers interested in community-campus partnerships.
