WORDOUT: Community Research Dissemination Challenge
Getting the word out – making research matter.
We have a challenge – do you have an idea?
Research discoveries can take up to 17 years to reach communities. This is too slow – researchers need your help. How can you share the latest health research within your community?
The WORDOUT: Community Research Dissemination Challenge is an exciting opportunity for community organizations to offer creative ideas and innovative strategies to get the “word out” about the latest research and evidence-based practices.
Dissemination is the act of widely spreading information. Research dissemination is focused on spreading information and knowledge gained through research that many people can understand. This understanding can encourage people use the best practices and make the best decisions about their health. Ultimately, this can build healthier communities.
The Community PARTners Core of the University of Pittsburgh Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) bridges relationships between community organizations and researchers. Share with us your most creative ideas for informing, educating, and disseminating research in your community.
Stay tuned! The next award cycle will open in summer 2017! Email firstname.lastname@example.org to ensure you and your organization receive updated information about WORDOUT awards.
