This past May, three cohorts of teams in the CBPR Partnership Academy came together in Detroit for a Symposium to discuss their work, both past, present and future. The teams reflected multiple dimensions of diversity including 18 states, and 2 tribal nations, rural, urban, suburban and island communities with 68% from racial and ethnic groups underrepresented in research. 

In addition to bringing together diverse attendees from across the country, this past May’s CBPR Symposium also featured two very distinguished speakers: Al Richmond and Abdul El-Sayed.
