EM2312F "Advancing Food Equity in North Texas: Community-Academic Partnership as a Multi-Sector Innovation Incubator" (CTSA GR 232-090123)
UT Southwestern CTSA Program Community Engagement Grand Rounds Online
Purpose and Content
A tension between the “push” of research and the “pull” of community need prevents rapid translation of evidence into practice. Historically, academic institutions have perpetuated an approach that pushes out research results without adequate attention to community needs, i.e., the pull model (1, 2). In contrast, building on a long history of collaboration with key health systems like the Dallas County safety-net Parkland Health and Hospital Systems, UT Southwestern’s CTSA-funded Office of Community Health and Research Engagement strives to strike a balance between the “push” and the “pull” by ensuring bidirectional exchange of ideas, needs and expertise between community stakeholders and academic researchers. To foster patient-centered clinical and translational research, investigators need to understand how to identify community needs and priorities by using evidence-based approaches and best practices to optimize community stakeholder engagement at multiple levels.
Physicians (MD and DO); Non-Physicians (PA, APN, Psy, RN); PhD level researchers.
At the conclusion of this activity, the participant should be able to:
Describe key characteristics of community-academic partnerships designed to promote innovation.
Discuss innovative programs developed for delivery through the charitable food system (e.g., food pantries).
Identify opportunities to integrate food pantry programming with services in other sectors.
