About the Community Health Equity and Engagement Research (CHEER) Initiative
CHEER is part of a collaborative Penn State Social Science Research Institute (SSRI) and Penn State CTSI initiative to strengthen existing and foster new community-academic partnerships in community-engaged research efforts across Pennsylvania communities. This initiative will provide a “go to” location for faculty who seek to engage communities in their research and for community organizations and members to engage with Penn State expertise. Additional goals include providing educational onboarding and continuing learning opportunities for teams as well as creating pathways for sustaining engaged partners.
