CTSI's Community PARTners Core, the Urban League of Greater Pittsburgh, and the New Pittsburgh Courier collaborates on a monthly health page to bring relevant health information, statistics, and research opportunities to our local community and the Courier readership. Aims for this unique, ongoing partnership between academics, the community, and local media include community health education and advocacy, increasing minority participation in clinical and translational research, and encouraging individuals to become empowered and actively engaged in their own health. In 2013, the UPMC Center for Engagement & Inclusion was added as a new partner on the health pages. This partnership continues to grow, with more than 45 health topics being discussed. Recent pages are archived below.
The New Pittsburgh Courier distributes more than 10,000 copies of each weekly edition and is one of the nation's oldest and most prestigious black newspapers. Through these monthly segments, the partnership has provided information about Allegheny County-specific health disparities, community resources, and current research opportunities, as well as a commentary each month from Esther Bush, President and CEO of the Urban League of Greater Pittsburgh. For more information about this partnership, email Jennifer Jones, MPH, Community Engagement Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
