Shared Resource Panels (ShARPs)

Shared Resource Panels (ShARPs) are custom panels that bring together 8-10 community collaborators 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. Following CCH guidelines and principles of engagement, we ensure participants are properly compensated. Panels may be conducted in-person or via webconference based on preference and feasibility.  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.

Please note: we currently require a minimum 8-week ShARP planning timeframe due to limited capacity.
