Bronx Community Research Review Board (BxCRRB)

                Coming Soon 

The BxCRRB will be hosting a community dialogue this Spring 2017 as an initial step for our Community Engaged Research Academy (CERA) project, which is being funded through a PCORI Eugene Washington Engagement Award.

This project aims to ameliorate much of the experiences of scientific/institutional racism and research predation by centering and enhancing the experiential knowledge, perspectives, and skills that communities bring to health research, dissemination, and action(s). Additionally, through the CERA project, BxCRRB will create opportunities to increase health research literacy in the Bronx.

With this town hall we hope to learn about Bronxites' experiences and struggle with healthcare access and research within the community. We hope you join us at this event.

              About the BxCRRB 

The Bronx Community Research Review Board (BxCRRB) is a group of Bronx residents representative of this borough's diversity that volunteer to review proposals by academic research to make sure the interests of the community are being considered and respected.

The BxCRRB vision is to bridge the gap between researchers and Bronx residents in order to build trust and improve the quality of life for all Bronxites. 

1. Review research proposals to ensure they address the culture, language, values, and perspectives in the Bronx. 2. Educate ourselves on current health issues, ethics, developments, and other research findings on the Bronx. 3. Collaborate with community residents and stakeholders by facilitating meetings on health concerns in the Bronx. 4. Present to community boards, hospitals, and other centers on community-engaged research.
