The PC3 Community Research Partner Training program aims to educate and inform community members about the research process and how they can be involved in new and ongoing cancer-related research in the Philadelphia community.

The first cohort of up to 20 community members will begin in spring 2024. The training is designed for people who have no research background. Participants are not required to have any credentials.  Some sessions will be in-person, and other sessions will be online. The first session will require in-person attendance on 4/2/2024. Support for expenses (such as transportation and parking) and compensation will be provided.

Why is it important for you to be a PC3 Community Research Partner?

There are a lot of myths and concerns about research. From a series of community listening sessions, we learned that in order to build trust between marginalized communities and the research centers, it is very important to be transparent about how cancer research is done, especially in the community.

This 5-session training with provide you with:

  • Knowledge of the cancer research process
  • Tools to find and share trustworthy information and resources with your communities
  • Experience in conducting research in the community
  • Networking and meeting people who are also passionate about their communities

We are looking for community members who:

  • Live or work in Philadelphia
  • Are motivated to learn more about cancer and community cancer research
  • Care about their community’s wellness
  • Are committed to attending all training sessions

A team member from the PC3 will contact you to confirm your participation. You may also email info@phillycancercollab.org or contact 267-207-4101 for additional information.
