Community Based Research Network

The Community Based Research Network comes together the second Thursday of every month to hear and discuss issues related to community-based participatory research.  The group is primarily made up of our new investigator development award grantees (CHEEER Pilot Awards) and their community partners, CRSI scholar alumni, other applicants for the Pilot Awards, and community members involved in other CHEEER research projects.

The meetings are open to anyone interested in community-based participatory research and we encourage any organizations to host the meetings in their space if they’d like.

Monthly Writing Group

The CHEEER Monthly Writing Group meets the first Wednesday of each month at 10:30 am to discuss various manuscripts, help tackle barriers to publishing, provide some brief recommendations around analysis, generate ideas for responses to reviewers, and incorporate different perspectives.

Our goal is to help investigators (especially early stage) get through the challenges of publication while also helping to include community perspectives.  If you would like to get your manuscript on the agenda, please complete our intake form and reach out to Elodie Nonguierma ( with any questions.
