Community Engagement: Stories from the Field
2:00-3:00 pm (ET)
Webinar Details & Objectives
Interest in the science of community engagement has grown dramatically in the past few years. It has become apparent that if community partnerships are the bricks that form the foundation of community-based participatory research (CBPR), trust is the mortar that holds these bricks together and keeps the foundation strong. Currently, those who are engaged in CBPR in immigrant communities sometimes face challenges in winning trust. Join Dr. Karen D'Alonzo from Rutgers University to discuss the challenges and strategies to establish engagement and trust in immigrant communities.
- Describe global and national rise in nationalism and xenophobi
- Describe challenges to community engagement in immigrant communities
- Describe strategies that nurse researchers can use to establish and maintain trust in immigrant communities
