Our Community Partners

We are part of a national group of CEAL Teams who are engaging communities in states across the country. Our shared goal is to provide trustworthy and accurate information and to use rapid research approaches to find effective ways to deliver information to communities hardest hit by the pandemic across the United States. 

The NIH Community Engagement Alliance (CEAL) is a research network designed to work with communities and community-based organizations to identify promising engagement and outreach practices that communicate trustworthy, science-based information to communities experiencing health disparities.
