Center for Community Health Partnerships (CCHP)
The Center for Community Health Partnerships (CCHP) aims to develop sustainable community-linked infrastructures
to improve the health of urban communities. The CCHP was established in 2012 to reflect the School of Nursing’s commitment to strengthening ties with communities in the greater Newark and New Brunswick areas.
- Strengthen collaborative relationships and community engagement among academic investigators, community members, and local health care organizations
- Promote the conduct of community-based participatory research
(CBPR), addressing health issues of concern to urban residents
of these areas
- Promote translation, implementation, and adoption of evidence-based health interventions into community settings
