Community Engagement Key Function Committee

As part of efforts by the new NCATS CTSA Steering Committee to emphasize focused project activity and streamline the consortium, the CTSA committees were closed effective February 17, 2014. All information related to those committees and their operations has been archived on the respective committee pages. Please direct any committee-related inquiries to info@ctsac4.org.

The predominant mission of the Community Engagement Key Function Committee is to implement a successful broad plan of community and practice engagement among the CTSA sites by sharing knowledge, expertise and resources. The goal of the CTSA Community Engagement Key Function Committee is to effectively engage communities and practices in the translational research process via bidirectional dialogues. The main areas of focus include: community and practice outreach, access and dissemination of the translational research process via bidirectional dialogues. The specific milestones of the committee include developing a community engagement needs assessment; generating a project registrar with the input of the NIH and other federal agencies, and community practices agencies and members; establishing partnerships for funding collaborative development of curricula and evaluation outcomes as well as metrics for community engaged research.
