Pitch Partners: Community-Academic Partnerships Aimed at Violence Prevention

Saturday, September 12 | 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Virtual Event

In partnership with the Neighborhood Leadership Fellows (NLF), join the Center for Community Health Partnership and Research for a special edition of Pitch Partners. The 2020 NLF Cohort will pitch ideas focused on community-academic partnerships aimed at addressing more equitable regional policies for neighborhoods and preventing violence in our community.

At Pitch Partners, community and university partners have the opportunity to pitch health-related projects and ideas in order to identify potential partners and receive critical feedback. Collaboration between citizens, community organizations, health care organizations, and universities is key to innovative approaches.

Four proposed ideas will be selected for seven minute pitch-style presentations. Teams can use a variety of visual media, including but not limited to slides and videos. Pitches are followed by a 5-10 minutes of Q&A from a panel with a mixture of backgrounds and expertise and audience members. The last 30 minutes of the event is dedicated to networking to share insights on the project ideas.
