Community Based Participatory Research
Somali Health Board has partnered with multiple organizations including Kaiser Permanente, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, and the University of Washington to inform, adapt, and co-lead community based research. In addition to partnering with other organizations, SHB conducted CBPR focused on mental health. Our research team at SHB focuses on ensuring research done in and with our community is respectful, equitable, and respects community knowledge and expertise. Although our organization recognizes that all research cannot be CBPR, we place value on involving the community at every step, allowing opportunities ownership at all times when possible, and placing high value on the expertise within the Somali community.
