Community-Based Scientific Research in Health & Aging

This course is designed to introduce interdisciplinary researchers to the principles and practices of community-based scientific research in health research, gerontology and geriatrics. The course consists of a series of expert presentations from researchers and practitioners involved in community-based research projects intended to benefit the elderly in New York City. Individual seminar topics will range from theoretical presentations of different models of community-based and other types of translational research models (e.g., CBPR, action research and related methods that engage community participation), methodological education, ethical issues in community-based research, specific community research projects, and funding and publication issues. A primary emphasis is on exposure to interdisciplinary activities, diverse perspectives, and values provided by researcher and community-practice presenters.
