Welcome to the
NIH Community Engagement Alliance (CEAL)
Partnering with Communities to Improve Health
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) Community Engagement Alliance — also known as CEAL —works to promote health equity, improve health outcomes, and strengthen partnerships through community-engaged research.
CEAL aims to address racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic health disparities by partnering with communities to:
- Build trust in science and research.
- Ensure inclusion across the research continuum.
- Advance community-driven solutions addressing health inequities.
- Strengthen community-engaged research.
Our strength is in our communities.
