Community Outreach

Community outreach is a verb. It is how we actively reach out to and engage the diverse communities we serve. So whether you’re a past, current, or future research participant looking for resources to learn more about how you can be a part of discovery at UH, or a family member or caregiver of someone recently diagnosed with a disease or condition seeking more options—we're here to support you on that journey.

The UH Clinical Research Center (CRC) is powered by staff with incredible skillsets, clinical and non-clinical experience, and a passion for connecting with the community. We use our curiosity to fuel conversations that lead to education and collaboration opportunities and ensure a broad understanding of clinical research. With a geographic footprint spanning Northeast, Northwest, and Southeast Ohio, we know that our value is only as good as our knowledge of what our communities need and want.

Community Partners

We are continuously building and growing our relationships with valued community partners. From community development corporations, health and disease-specific nonprofit organizations, public and private employers, and school districts—as we reach out further into our communities, we see no limit on how we can all support the clinical research movement.

Join the Clinical Research Community Advisory Board

Have you heard about our Clinical Research Community Advisory Board (CAB)? We’re accepting applications from community members who want to share their opinions about educating and building awareness around opportunities to create a positive, participant-focused research experience. Learn more about the CAB or send an email for more information.

Clinical Research Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Increasing diversity in clinical research is not just essential but rather necessary to advance inclusion and health equity goals. Learn more about what we're doing to ensure our practices and outcomes align with diversity, equity, and inclusion principles.
