Following an overview of the orientation and core tenets of Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR), this presentation will use brief case studies from diverse communities to illustrate CBPR’s contributions to research “relevance, rigor and reach” and potential outcomes on patient, participants, and though to community and policy levels. The use of CBPR in a range of public health areas including diabetes, HIV, criminal justice reform and “wage theft” among immigrant workers will be highlighted, as will the ethical and methodological challenges in community-engaged research and some strategies for addressing them.
