Description

Voices of community partners can help guide future community engaged research partnerships. Drs. Upshur and Wenz-Gross have been working with a Worcester community coalition for almost 15 years to create, document and research issues of at risk preschool children. Their first work, funded by the Health Foundation of Central Massachusetts, developed and tested a model of early childhood mental health consultation to child care programs. This led to testing of a primary prevention curriculum funded by the National Institute of Mental Health, and subsequently to a large randomized intervention study funded by the US Department of Education. Community partners will describe their experiences in this community driven research.
