Community Engagement

The Center has become a leader in stakeholder-engaged research and practice.  We engage with and include a diverse set of stakeholders including researchers, health system professionals, patients, community representatives, policy makers, and funders.

 
 

Ways we Engage

To fulfil our commitment to being a leading transformative force for health equity, we are implementing a variety of engagement activities with our stakeholder communities.  These include:

  • Outreach and Knowledge Sharing​​​​​​: We engage in community outreach activities such as public forums, health fairs, special training programs, fact sheets, website and social media posts, and newspaper, magazine, radio and TV interviews. 
  • Community-Academic Partnerships: We build community-academic partnerships which draw from the respective strengths and expertise of academic institutions and community partners to achieve health equity in socially at-risk communities.
  • Public Policy: We commit to bringing research into policy decisions within private institutions, at all levels of government, and across sectors. 

Our engagement activities are informed by three strategic goals: 

  1. Strengthen the Center's infrastructure to support best practices for stakeholder-engaged research 
  2. Rigorously evaluate both our approach to stakeholder engagement, and the impact of stakeholder engagement on internal (i.e., Hopkins faculty and trainees) and external stakeholders 
  3. Create opportunities to extend the Center’s local, statewide, and national impact
