Community Partners

WV communities are the core and driving force of health research and activity across the state. CRCH strives to guide and connect rural and isolated communities to opportunities and resources to address health priorities. We work with dynamic regional, state, and community-based partners on research-related projects to improve health outcomes, practices, and partnership for the holistic health and well-being of West Virginians. Please visit our Research & Scholarly Projects page to learn more about our recent collaborations.

If your community is interested in engaging with CRCH, we encourage you to visit our contact page or submit a question or idea Engage With Us.

Please also visit the West Virginia Clinical and Translational Science Institute page if you’re interested in community-engaged clinical and translational research.
