Recent fellows from the Center for Community Health Equity and the Steans Center will present findings from their community-based research at a symposium Thursday, April 13, on the Lincoln Park campus.

Community-based research helps DePaul external partners solve important challenges, build equity and engage in social action and sustainability initiatives across Chicago and the world. Centering the goals and research questions of partners also benefits the educators who embark on such research.

The symposium will be from 3 to 5 p.m. in Room 103 of the Arts and Letters Building, and it is open to faculty, staff, students and community partners. Refreshments will be served.

Presenters and their topics will be:

  • Molly Brown, Psychology: #SOS4SROs — leveraging research and action for single-room occupancy preservation
  • Joanna Buscemi, Psychology: Community-engaged health equity research with Brothers Health Collective
  • Sonya Crabtree-Nelson, Social Work: Head injury and strangulation in Swedish Hospital Emergency Department domestic violence patients
  • Nila Ginger Hofman, Anthropology: Neoliberal intensification — tipped wages and the health of restaurant workers
  • Daniel Schober, Public Health: Community-based research to address hypertension among African Americans on the West Side of Chicago
