Investigators and Scholars

 

Research is empowered by its impact on the communities we serve: the greater understanding and support our research has in the community, the more likely it is to be successful in achieving our goals of advancing the possibilities of health.

The Community Outreach Committee exists to help you maximize the impact of your research on our local and global communities. Contact us to discuss how your research can have greater integration with the community or how you can join the committee.
