NNED Virtual Roundtable: Community-Driven Service to Science Efforts


Thursday, April 27, 2017 | 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM EDT


On behalf of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), we invite you to participate in a Virtual Roundtable for the National Network to Eliminate Disparities in Behavioral Health (the NNED) on “Community-Driven Service to Science Efforts.”

The Virtual Roundtable will highlight collaborative approaches that have been used by practitioners/program developers, researchers/evaluators, and members of the community directly involved in the evaluation process to elevate the science for culturally-based practices.

The purpose of the Roundtable will be to:

  1. Increase awareness about different approaches to community-driven practitioner-researcher relationships;
  2. Identify tools and/or practices that community-based organizations can use to grow a community-driven practice to address behavioral health disparities; and
  3. Inform a process for the NNED to be a connector among practitioners, researchers, and community members engaged in the practice and evaluation efforts.

Target Audience: Are you interested in building the science to address behavioral health disparities and equity? Are you a researcher, academician, community member, program developer? Please participate in our Virtual Roundtable to listen, learn, and contribute.

Social Media: If you would like to share your experience, or have questions you would like addressed on the Virtual Roundtable, please post on twitter using #Service2Science.
