Community Engagement Core

The Community Engagement (CE) Core develops, implements, and evaluates a community-based infrastructure to maintain linkage (engagement) between DRC researchers and targeted communities, including community-based organizations, community leaders, potential research subjects, and community health-care systems and providers.

The CE Core emphasizes racial/ethnic disparities for diabetes, which disproportionately affects minority populations.
