Research & Evaluation

"If we want more evidence-based practice, we need more practice-based evidence"
~Lawrence W. Green, UCSF

Community engagement and community partnership are essential to improving the health of populations and advancing health equity because these methodologies ensure that interventions are better integrated into community life, and therefore, are more feasible, resonant and sustainable.

With that premise in mind, we help community-based organizations, clinics, civic agencies and UCSF researchers successfully collaborate to investigate, plan, disseminate, apply and evaluate their work.

We do this work through Clinical & Translational Science Institute (CTSI) Community Engagement & Health Policy.
