Stakeholder-Academic Resource Panels (ShARPs)

Cultivating dialogues between community members and academic researchers...

ShARPs are custom panels that bring together 8-10 community stakeholders with professional and/or personal expertise related to a research project.

These community experts offer feedback on adaptations that can improve research relevance, feasibility and/or dissemination opportunities. CCH provides food, parking vouchers and compensation to panelists.

This is one of the many services that CCH offers to engage communities in research with the aim of expediting the translation of research findings into solutions that improve health throughout the Chicagoland area.
