Community-Driven Research Day (CDRD)
Community-Driven Research Day (CDRD) is a program that encourages collaboration between researchers and community-based organizations (CBOs)/community groups that have research questions they are interested in answering.
This event is jointly sponsored by the following institutions: Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Drexel University, Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, Temple University, 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.
