Working Together to Improve the Health in the Mid-South

The Mid-South TCC recognizes that our region becomes stronger and healthier when communities and universities work together to build mutually beneficial partnerships. In all of our work, we emphasize academic-community partnerships that are collaborative, participatory, and empowering. Through these partnerships academic investigators benefit from enhanced community participation in related research studies, greater community buy-in to the research agenda of the Mid-South TCC, and clearer routes of dissemination and intervention sustainability. The communities benefit by participating in dialogue with the Mid-South TCC about the research agenda, through the dissemination of evidence-based obesity and chronic disease interventions and enhanced access to state-of-the-art research.
