Individuals across Michigan want to have a positive impact on the health of their communities. Participating in research is one way to help improve the health care for future generations, so it's especially important to have everyone represented - people from all ethnicities and those with medical conditions and those without. MICHR recognizes that the research conducted should be responsive to the needs of our communities, and the knowledge gained from the research needs to be placed back in the hands of the communities. The following resources are steps towards these aims:
MICHR's Community Engagement Program aims to strengthen Community-University research partnerships by serving as a conduit to increase bi-directional communication, linking community priorities with scientists to jointly answer questions about the health of communities.
MICHR's Clinical Translation Science Program goal is to assist primary care physicians and nurses to conduct studies in primary care settings in order to help practitioners apply research findings that are reflective of the complexities of primary care practice. The CTS Program is devoted to improving health outcomes through the bidirectional introduction of research findings into clinical practice and front-line clinical perspective into scientific inquiry.
