Community-academic partnerships and social change

June 23, 2015

This book chapter explains how partnerships between social epidemiology researchers and public health practitioners can be improved. The chapter addresses two questions, asked from the perspective of a community-based health program planner: (1) what kinds of evidence should social epidemiology produce to be of use in community-based practice? And, (2) what are the relational characteristics of a community-academic partnership that produces actionable evidence for social change?
