Convening…

…for Collective Impact

Convening or meeting for the sake of meeting is futile.  CCPH always has a goal in mind when we convene which includes to make or have impact.

CCPH Convening in Action

National Conferences

Community-Campus Partnerships for Health (CCPH) organizes international conferences in the U.S., bringing together hundreds of people from across the globe to engage in substantive discussions, gain new knowledge and practical skills, think critically about their work and take action individually and collectively.  Our conferences are noted for their emphasis on inclusion, experiential learning and subsequent action.

From dynamic and inspiring plenary presentations to facilitated discussions by peer group and interest area to community site visits and social justice-focused arts programming, each CCPH conference creates an inclusive space where all are embraced for the knowledge, wisdom and experience they bring to the table.

Regional Community Partner Forums

Regional Community Partner Forums support the ability of community-based organizations and community leaders to play significant roles as partners in research, ultimately ensuring that the results of research are used to eliminate health disparities and achieve health equity in their communities.  Specifically, the regional forums aim to:

  • Equip community leaders with the knowledge and skills needed to successfully negotiate community-academic research partnerships, fully engage as partners in health disparities research and ensure that research results are used to address health disparities in their communities;
  • Foster sustainable regional networks for community partner peer mentoring and professional development;
  • Connect regional efforts to CCPH’s Community Network for Research Equity & Impact’s (CNREI) previous work and national efforts to advocate for community partners in research.

Regional PCORI Meetings

CCPH has established a partnership with the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI).  We are an active participant in regional PCORI meetings as we collectively seek to advance health equity and social justice.
