The Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research, National Institutes of Health, is sponsoring a technical assistance workshop on community-based participatory research (CBPR) on February 29, 2008. The purpose of this technical assistance workshop is to both highlight the advancements of CBPR and facilitate the CBPR Funding Opportunity Announcements released on January 16, 2008 (PA-08-074, PAR-08-075, and PAR-08-076). Those interested in applying to these announcements should watch the full-day workshop beginning at 10 a.m. (EST) and learn how best to leap into the community.
Presenters will include NIH Program Directors and Chiefs, members of the NIH CBPR Scientific Interest Group (SIG), Director of the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Shortage Designation Branch, and two pairs of successful CBPR partners. NIH staff will describe CBPR and discuss topics including its advantages and presence at NIH, grant writing tips, and how to prepare a responsive application to the recently released CBPR Funding Opportunity Announcements. Further, presenters will share recommendations for successfully navigating the NIH review process. Presentations will also cover effective CBPR Interventions and the PA-08-074 announcement, Medically Underserved Areas/Populations designations and the PAR-08-075/076 announcements, as well as CBPR partnerships including guidance on establishing partnerships and how to overcome potential challenges.
This event is free of charge and requires no registration. It will be webcast live and archived. Therefore, the recording will be available to the general public during the scheduled time at http://videocast.nih.gov/ and after the event concludes at http://videocast.nih.gov/PastEvents.asp (under “Conferences”).
