Trailblazers Share & Celebrate
Formerly known as Pilot Projects, initiatives at the symposium included obesity, infant mortality, sickle cell disease, diabetes, an adverse drug reaction screener, quality of life in older adults, and yoga for those with brain injuries.
Of the Trailblazer projects, Dr. Shekhar said, “These pilot grants are a great example of the transformation of connecting academics to community members and actually addressing real-life community problems.”
CHeP’s Trailblazer Award is a pilot funding opportunity for community-engaged research projects proposed by community-university partners. All awardees meet quarterly to provide each other support and to create a network as trailblazers in this important field.
To learn more about each of the projects, visit the Trailblazer Symposium webpage where you can access descriptions of each project and video of each of the presentations.
