Lunch & Learn Series

The Lunch & Learn series is designed to assist health researchers in the Kansas City metropolitan area to explore how a community engaged research approach might be of value to their research programs. National funding priorities are shifting towards T2-T4 translational research proposals from multi-disciplinary teams with many requiring evidence of stakeholder/community involvement. We'd like to help other researchers identify effective strategies for being competitive in this new environment.


The goals for these sessions are to:

  1. Explore whether a research-community partnerships would benefit your research
  2. Share successful strategies for securing funding for translational community engaged research
  3. Share successes and challenges in developing multi-disciplinary teams that include community organizations
  4. Enhance understanding of the skills necessary to engage community organizations
