The Network for Community-Engaged Primary Care Research

The Network for Community-Engaged Primary Care Research (NCPCR) supports CEAL’s mission by using community-engaged research in primary care settings to identify and start programs and service delivery strategies to address health inequities. Health care providers’ trusted voices get patients involved in their communities to actively focus on health knowledge gaps, build trust in biomedical research and science, and address social determinants of health and chronic diseases. NCPCR’s mission is to establish a primary care research network within NIH CEAL that is aligned with CEAL’s mission and goals to build long-lasting partnerships that tackle health inequities and improve diversity and inclusion in research.

NCPCR Objectives:

  • Support research on awareness, education, and health information needs relating to biomedical research.
  • Promote inclusion of the most affected racial and ethnic groups in biomedical research, including clinical studies and trials.

To achieve these objectives, NCPCR hosts Learning Series webinars featuring health care providers discussing practice-based research. View recordings of NCPCR's Learning Series webinars on YouTube. 

Educational materials such as fact sheets and brochures about COVID-19, Long COVID, and more are also available on the NCRN website.
