Community Engagement Core

CTBScience CEC

The CTBScience Community Engagement Core is a centralized unit within the Center, designed to assist investigators with community engagement in basic human subject and clinical trial research. The Community Engagement Core also provides consultation on engagement methodology including recruitment and retention guidance, community liaison services, and facilitates the CTBScience Community Advisory Council

To date, the CTBScience Community Engagement Core has assisted in the development of community partnerships with both local and state-wide collaborators toward research initiatives aimed at addressing health equity issues and reducing disparities in marginalized and underrepresented populations. 

Collaborations include:

  • The Florida Department of Health
  • CAN Community Health Center
  • Bond Community Health Clinic
  • Capital Tea
  • Tallahassee Memorial Hospital
  • FLASH Network
  • The Florida Policy Institute
  • Big Bend Cares
  • Florida Voices for Health

The CTBScience Community Engagement Core is led by Drs. Nicole Ennis and Scott Pickett. The core is further supported by Dr. Meardith Pooler-Burgess and Avery George
