Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR) is one approach for assessing population health and evaluating programs. In this live webcast, Dr. Jody Vogelzang and Dr. Wayne Squires will use the example of a research project focused on food insecurity in Grand Rapids, Michigan to provide an overview of the CBPR approach with a focus on stakeholder involvement. The presentation will illustrate how CBPR transitions the focus from doing public health research and practice "for" to do it "with" community partners.
