The Centre for Urban Health Initiatives and the Wellesley Central
Health Corporation, in partnership with University College at the
University of Toronto, are pleased to announce a call for nominations
for a Community Based Research (CBR) Award of Merit. The award will
recognize a Principal Investigator who has demonstrated exemplary
academic participation in the field of community based research, as
defined by Minkler and Wallerstein
"CBR is a collaborative approach to research that equitably
partners in the research process and recognizes the unique strengths
that each brings. CBR begins with a research topic of importance to the
community with the aim of combining knowledge and action for social
change to improve community health and eliminate health disparities. "
Nominations are invited from community, policy, or academic project
partners who are working (or who have worked) with the nominee on a
recent CBR project.
