Spring Quarter NCbRI workshops are on hold as we take time to adjust to the changes due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In lieu of the workshop on Friday, April 10th, we will host a facilitated virtual Community-check in on Friday, April 10th from 12:30 to 1:30. We will take an hour to touch base and talk about how we are adapting to distance practice in the immediate term as community-based researchers.
Please REGISTER and we will send you a zoom link. Because of the sensitive nature of this moment, and to enable trust and comfort with participants on the call, we will not be recording this session.
We will be in touch in the coming weeks regarding the next steps for remote versions of the Spring Workshops and completion of the Certificate Program. We are committed to supporting all of you as a community of community-based researchers.
If you have any questions, suggestions or recommendations for how you would like to see the workshops proceed this quarter and are not able to participate in the April 10th zoom call, please email the CbRI Co-Directors: Dr. Connie McGuire (email@example.com) or Dr. Victoria Lowerson Bredow (firstname.lastname@example.org).
