We are pleased to announce that PT faculty member Dr. Laurel Daniels Abbruzzese and OT faculty member Phyllis Simon have been granted a $30,000, 2018 Irving Institute Community Based Participatory Research Pilot Award for their proposal “Facilitators and Barriers to Participation in Evidence-based Programs in Urban Senior Centers serving LGBT older adults.” This is in partnership with SAGE, a nonprofit organization dedicated to serving the older LGBT community.
The Community-Based Participatory Research Scholars and Awards Program (CBPR Program) is a capacity-building opportunity to stimulate community-engaged research between Columbia University faculty and community/faith-based organizations. The CBPR Program offers structured training and practical experience in community-based participatory research (CBPR). Working in academic and community partnered pairs, participants co-develop a pilot research proposal that they submit to the Irving Institute for funding consideration.
