Community engagement is vital to the mission of the National Centers for Translational Sciences in improving health outcomes for all. The Recruitment, retention and community engagement core of the University of Illinois at Chicago’s Center for Clinical and Translational Sciences has established a long-standing Community Engagement Advisory Board (CEAB) as a free consultation service to faculty, students and community agencies. The purpose of this webinar would be to describe the role of CEAB boards in facilitating clinical and translational science, discuss best practices in the formation and development of CEABs, identify strategies for building skills and capacity among CEAB members, and offer methods for evaluating the contributions of CEABs to research teams.
