This is Sarena Seifer from Community-Campus Partnerships for Health. I
haven't "properly" introduced myself, but will do so soon! I am writing
to suggest a few people/organizations to invite to participate in this
*The Community Health Scholars Program is a postdoctoral fellowship
program in community-based participatory research - offered at UNC-Chapel
Hill, University of Michigan and Johns Hopkins Univ. The program has
resulted in quite a "community of CBPR scholars" from the advisory
committee, the faculty, community mentors and the postdoctoral fellows.
It would be great if we could invite someone from the program - perhaps
the program director Toby Citrin at the Univ of Michigan.
*Meredith Minkler from UC-Berkeley has just completed a book for
Jossey-Bass Publishers, Community-Based Participatory Research for Health
and is a genuine leader in the field of CBPR. Details on her book:
*Ella Greene-Moton is a community organizer from Flint, Michigan who is
co-chair of the National Community Committee of the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention's Prevention Research Centers. This committee is
unusual and important in that it is a committee of community leaders
involved in community-based prevention research that is advising the CDC
on ways to strengthen community involvement in CBPR.
Thanks for considering these suggestions,
Community-Campus Partnerships for Health
