Item159 Community Engagement (CE) Brokers: Diversity and the Science of CE(Cambridge University Press, 2022-04-19) Piechowski, Patricia; Claxton, Gina; Spencer, Nicola; Vasile, Elizabeth; Zender, Robynn; Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CTSI), School of MedicineOBJECTIVES/GOALS: Since 2013, managers of community engagement (CE) programs across the Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) consortium funded by the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) have convened monthly to build connections, share knowledge, and enable collaboration. METHODS/STUDY POPULATION: Notable for focus on staff leadership, the CE Brokers group has been central to the ongoing success of CTSA community engagement partnerships and approaches to research. In early 2022, a survey of the 139-member group asked about their roles and responsibilities, the ways the CE Brokers network has contributed to their hubs adoption and development of best practices and innovations, resources and lessons learned, and the creation of opportunities for members to collaboratively conduct and disseminate original research, and research on the science of community engagement. The survey also asked CE Brokers if they or their community partners are part of an underrepresented community. RESULTS/ANTICIPATED RESULTS: These demographic data will be shared, along with analyses of data on growth of the group over time, evolving themes, and a SWOT analysis completed in 2021. DISCUSSION/SIGNIFICANCE: This will provide a platform to explore new avenues for the CE Brokers and their impact within the NCATS CTSA consortium, in line with the evolving direction of the clinical and translational research enterprise.

ItemCommunity Engagement: Evaluation of the JPMorgan Chase Foundation - IUPUI Near Eastside Legacy Initiative(2014-04-11) Garcia, Silvia; Bennett, Teresa; Fitzpatrick, ChristineIn early 2011, the IUPUI Solution Center received a $75,000, two-year grant from the JPMorgan Chase Foundation to facilitate faculty and student involvement in the Near Eastside of Indianapolis to promote community health and wellness. The project emerged from the community’s stated need to increase efforts that improve the overall health and fitness and provide affordable access to fitness, wellness, educational opportunities and health-related resources to residents of the Near Eastside. A comprehensive assessment to measure the program efficacy, cost-effectiveness and impact yielded that the JPMorgan Chase Foundation – IUPUI Near Eastside Legacy Initiative (CHASE/NELI) increased awareness of and activity in the Chase Near Eastside Legacy Center and promoted health and wellness, through targeted communication and public health awareness strategies. ItemCommunity-Engaged Research. How IUPUI faculty engages the community in research activities(2019-05-21) Garcia, SilviaAcademic researchers who conduct research with and in the community use different approaches that reflect the richness of epistemologies and disciplinary backgrounds that inform community scholarship. Although there is extensive literature explaining the principles and methods of “community-engaged research”, there seem to be different understandings of how these principles translate into the research practice. This work describes how IUPUI faculty members that claimed in a survey to be community-engaged scholars involve the community in research activities. We analyzed the narratives of fifty-one tenured and tenure-track faculty members who were interviewed to explore their lived experiences in their work with communities on research or creative activity projects. Four predominant practices of engagement were identified in their narratives. These practices reflect differences in their research paradigm, the expected research outcomes, and their conceptualization of the participant community.

ItemDesign and Implementation of the Diabetes Impact Project: A Multisector Partnership to Reduce Diabetes Burden in Indianapolis Communities(Wolters Kluwer, 2023) Staten, Lisa K.; Weathers, Tess D.; Nicholas, Celeste; Grain, Tedd; Haut, Dawn P.; Duckett-Brown, Patrice; Halverson, Paul K.; Caine, Virginia; Global Health, School of Public HealthContext: Community-level health disparities have not arisen suddenly but are the result of long-term systemic inequities. This article describes the design and implementation of a community-engaged multisector partnership to address health disparities by reducing the diabetes burden in 3 Indianapolis communities through the implementation of evidence-based strategies across the prevention continuum. Program: The project has 5 foundational design principles: engage partners from multiple sectors to address community health, focus on geographic communities most affected by the health disparity, practice authentic community engagement, commit for the long term, and utilize a holistic approach spanning the prevention continuum. Implementation: The design principles are incorporated into the following project components in each community: (1) health system community health workers (hCHWs), (2) neighborhood CHWs (nCHWs), (3) community health promotion initiatives, and (4) resident steering committees, as well as a backbone organization responsible for overall coordination, project communication, evaluation, and partnership coordination. Evaluation: This complex multilevel intervention is being evaluated using data sources and methodologies suited to each project component and its purpose overall. Each component is being evaluated independently and included holistically to measure the impact of the project on the health and culture of health in the communities. Key Performance Indicators were established upon project initiation as our common metrics for the partnership. Because complex interventions aiming at population-level change take time, we evaluate Diabetes Impact Project-Indianapolis Neighborhoods (DIP-IN), assuming its impact will take many years to achieve. Discussion: Health disparities such as the diabetes prevalence in project communities have not arisen suddenly but are the result of long-term systemic inequities. This complex issue requires a complex holistic solution with long-term commitment, trusted partnerships, and investment from diverse sectors as seen in this project. Implications for policy and practice include the need to identify stable funding mechanisms to support these types of holistic approaches. ItemGuia para el ciudado de los dientes y boca para personas de Guatemala, El Salvador y Honduras(2019-06) Maupome, Gerardo; Gil, Cindy; Briceno, Firany; Aguilar, Rafael; Armenta, KarlaThis is a dental health navigation manual for the Hispanic population. This group is disproportionately affected by dental health problems, perhaps the worst situation for people from Central America. An advisory group was organized, composed of people from three Central American countries: El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala. Along with community input, the team developed the “Guia para el cuidado de los dientes y boca” navigation manual. ItemGuia para Padres: Opciones al finalizar la escuela secundaria(2021-07) Garcia, Silvia; Colgan, Susana; Fox, Sarah; Gil, Cindy; King, Gloria; Wolf, Devin; Ness, MorganThis Parent’s Guide was produced in collaboration with a group of mothers and fathers of the Newcomer Program of the Indianapolis Public Schools (IPS) who participated in online meetings and activities between September 2020 and June 2021.

ItemPartnering to Increase Colorectal Cancer Screening: Perspectives of Community Advisory Board Members(Sage, 2021-10) Rawl, Susan M.; Bailey, Sandra; Cork, Beatrice; Fields, Matthew; Griffin, Thomas; Haunert, Laura; Kline, Judy; Krier, Connie; Lagunes, Juan; Lambert, Ruth L.; Malloy, Caeli; Quick, Jack; Shedd-Steele, Rivienne; Strom, Sylvia; Carter-Harris, Lisa; School of NursingThe Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) defines engagement in research as the meaningful involvement of patients, caregivers, clinicians, insurers, and others throughout the entire research process – from planning, to conducting the study, to disseminating study results. The purposes of this paper are to: 1) describe methods used to engage community members across the various phases of a PCORI-funded comparative effectiveness trial to increase colorectal cancer screening; and 2) report results of qualitative and quantitative evaluations of community advisory board members’ experiences on this project. Decisions to join and stay engaged with the study included feeling valued and appreciated, being compensated, the opportunity to contribute to research based on their skills and expertise, and being committed to colon cancer prevention efforts. Challenges identified by advisory board members included the significant time commitment, transportation, and meeting location. Lessons learned and guidance for researchers committed to patient and community engagement are described. ItemPerspectives on a US–Mexico Border Community’s Diabetes and “Health-Care” Access Mobilization Efforts and Comparative Analysis of Community Health Needs over 12 Years(Frontiers, 2017-07-10) Rosales, Cecilia Ballesteros; de Zapien, Jill Eileen Guernsey; Chang, Jean; Ingram, Maia; Fernandez, Maria L.; Carvajal, Scott C.; Staten, Lisa K.; Health Policy and Management, School of Public HealthThis paper describes a community coalition-university partnership to address health needs in an underserved US-Mexico border, community. For approximately 15 years, this coalition engaged in community-based participatory research with community organizations, state/local health departments, and the state's only accredited college of public health. Notable efforts include the systematic collection of health-relevant data 12 years apart and data that spawned numerous health promotion activities. The latter includes specific evidence-based chronic disease-preventive interventions, including one that is now disseminated and replicated in Latino communities in the US and Mexico, and policy-level changes. Survey data to evaluate changes in a range of health problems and needs, with a specific focus on those related to diabetes and access to health-care issues-identified early on in the coalition as critical health problems affecting the community-are presented. Next steps for this community and lessons learned that may be applicable to other communities are discussed.
