Blending theory, practice and lessons learned, this handbook offers constructive guidance on best practices to establish a dynamic, community-academic partnership that utilizes the talents and unique knowledge of community members and the skills and resources of researchers.

Underserved Populations: Advancing Health, Engaging, and Developing (Up Ahead) Research Handbook provides a practical “how to” methodology for engaging communities.

It addresses three key aspects of developing a research-community collaboration:

  1. Identifying community partners and engaging diverse community stakeholders.
  2. Using group processes for learning about stakeholders’ ideas and priorities.
  3. Examining data from community members and developing responsive initiatives.
