For Clinical & Community Partners
The ITHS Community Engagement program is committed to facilitating community-academic research partnerships in eastern Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana and Idaho (WWAMI) that are true collaborations. We aim to increase community involvement in every stage of research. We promote research that will address priorities and health outcomes in the communities and practices we work with, and support these communities in becoming more engaged and savvy about research. We work to understand the translational research interests, strengths and needs in the WWAMI region so that we can effectively facilitate multi-directional collaboration and exchange between academic, clinical and community-based institutions and organizations, and help support the development of a vibrant translational research community.
