Community Based Participatory Research (CBPR)

The Center for Oral Health Research – Clinical Core (C-COHR) helps to stimulate new research discoveries through community-based participatory research, facilitating the translation and adoption of new research findings into the community settings.  Our services engage academic-community partnerships, transforming oral health care and eliminating oral health disparities in our communities; as well as establishing mechanisms to sustain the progress of community-based initiatives.
