Inform Community Voices: a New Program to Match Partners for Research

Community Voices is a new program designed to match community-based organizations and academic researchers, to bring health concerns and research ideas from the community to the forefront. This is a collaborative project between the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and the Institute of Translational Health Sciences at the University of Washington.

Community Voices is currently recruiting representatives from community-based organizations with interest in engaging with academic researchers in community-driven projects to participate in a focus group focused on gathering information to inform the development of Community Voices.

The Community Voices program is seeking volunteers to participate in a focus group to assess the acceptability and usability of the Community Voices content, process, tools and web-based platform. Participation will involve participating in one of the two 1-1.5 hour focus groups. As a token of appreciation, you will receive a $35 gift card following the focus group.

Upcoming focus groups include:

  • Wednesday, January 9, 5:30-7pm, in the UW Medicine South Lake Union Building (850 Republican St, Seattle)
  • Friday, January 25, 5:30-7pm, in the UW Medicine South Lake Union Building (850 Republican St, Seattle)
