Call For Nominations: Community Based Research Award of Merit

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
(2004):

"CBR is a collaborative approach to research that equitably
involves all
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.
