Research Readiness Day 2023

Research Readiness Day

Research Readiness Day (RRD) is designed as a complement to CDRD to prepare participants to develop community-academic partnerships. RRD is a technical assistance event for CBOs and community groups interested in learning more about effective community/academic research partnerships.

This is a great opportunity for community organizations that presented posters at CDRD to gain technical assistance in developing their CDRD proposal.

RRD 2023 will be held virtually on February 16, 2023 from 10:00am – 12:00pm.

Community Driven Research Day 2023


via CHOP Center for Violence Prevention

Through CDRD, Community-Based Organizations (CBOs) and community groups interested in developing partnerships to conduct research participate in an interactive rapid presentation that highlights the organization’s/group’s mission, goals, and major accomplishments, as well as display research questions that they are interested in answering about how we can advance health and equity for their community members.

The 2023 Community-Driven Research Day will be held on January 26, 2023 from 9:30am – 12:30pm in the DiPiero Grand Meeting Room (Room 221) at Drexel University’s Gerri C. LeBow College of Business on 3220 Market Street, Philadelphia PA. To open the event, a panel of past CDRD awardees and community-driven research experts will present on effective community-academic collaborations. Following the panel discussion, CBO’s and community groups will participate in an interactive poster session to highlight their research questions of interests to researchers, public sector partners, and others interested in community-academic partnerships.

The event is jointly sponsored by the following institutions: Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Drexel University, Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, Temple University College of Public Health, Thomas Jefferson University, and The University of Pennsylvania.

We are committed to community-based participatory research, which includes the basic tenet that both community partners and research partners are involved in all phases of research, allowing community capacity and related opportunities to be developed and sustained. The focus of CDRD is about making connections and the CDRD organizing committee is willing to help facilitate connections.

Small grants are awarded to promising community partner-researcher collaborations annually through a competitive submission process.  

REGISTRATION for 2023 is closed.
