For the community partner, do you have a preference for the type of organization or sector in which they work?

Community partners may work in a variety of organizational settings, as long as their experience and expertise are relevant to the proposed research project. The community partner can work in any area, including community organizing, education, health care, local government, or any range of nonprofit and private sectors, whether health care-related or not. 

For the purposes of this program, community partners are deeply engaged with the community of interest. Individuals must have the potential to take action on the issue themselves or have relationships with entities that can take action. We aim to help develop community partners as research leaders, too. So while not professional researchers, community partners should be interested in using and helping to execute credible and transparent research for action.
