This third post in our Weitzman Institute blog series on conducting health equity research during the COVID-19 pandemic highlights research-related challenges and opportunities in working with community-based organizations and local government agencies.
AcademyHealth Senior Director Megan Collado reflects on the culmination of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation-supported program, Understanding and Supporting Anchor Businesses to Build a Culture of Health, managed by AcademyHealth, including what we’ve learned from the research and from key business and other stakeholders that were convened to better understand the impact of business’ place-based investments on health, well-being, and equity.
This research brief summarizes a portfolio of Robert Wood Johnson Foundation investments, including a research program managed by AcademyHealth, that examined how businesses might use anchor approaches to invest in the health and well-being of the communities where they are located.
This post is the first in the Health Equity Research Beyond COVID-19 Series, which highlights lessons learned when conducting research with marginalized and vulnerable communities during the pandemic, and implications for how to ensure the way in which we go about doing research is patient- and community-affirming.
