CENTS: Community Engagement Network for Translational Science
Mission: We aim to promote health equity and improve health outcomes for Long Islanders, and ultimately national populations, through partnerships with Long Island communities through our Community Ambassadors and Community Advisory Board.
Community Ambassadors will provide linkages to the specific communities they represent and know intimately, and are empowered as messengers of community trends, needs and concerns to LINCATS leadership and researchers. They will promote awareness of activities related to CTS with the goal of increased engagement between URGs and LINCATS.
