PACT Community Research Liaisons

Community Research Liaisons reside in their own communities and have received training in CBPR and translational research. They establish working partnerships between academic researchers and individuals within a community. They have been described as facilitators, ambassadors, confidants, and educators.

The relationships facilitated by the Community Research Liaisons can create community-based participatory research projects that better inform research and identify interventions which ultimately improve the health of the community. They work with the PACT scientific staff on health surveillance, coordinate pilot studies and partner with investigators on initiating and conducting translational research in their communities.​
