Title of Collaborative Activity:

Principles of Community Engagement (Second Edition)

Description of Collaborative Activity:

This new research resource was developed in partnership with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Institutes of Health, Health Resources and Services Administration, other federal agencies, academic institutions, community partners and individuals who are committed to advancing community engagement and to overcoming the challenges. Through hands-on advice and success stories, Principles of Community Engagement (Second Edition) can provide public health professionals, health care providers, researchers and community-based leaders and organizations with both the theoretical framework and practical guidance for engaging partners in projects to advance health science and benefit communities nationwide. The first edition of Principles of Community Engagement was published in 1997 by the CDC and the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR). Since then, the body of knowledge supporting community engagement principals and initiatives has grown. Principles of Community Engagement (Second Edition) provides new tools for those who are leading efforts to improve population health through community engagement. It also can serve as a guide for understanding the principles of community engagement for those who are developing or implementing a community engagement plan, and by faculty and students who want to teach and learn more.
