How to Recruit Diverse Participants
Jennifer Tiffany and Eduardo Gonzalez, CUCE-NYC
Wednesday, February 15, 2017
12:00-1:30 PM 157 MVR Hall
This interactive workshop will explore the engagement, recruitment, and retention of diverse participants in the context of partnerships with organizations, agencies, and communities. We will walk you through a step-by-step process that supports successful recruitment efforts. Guided by the interests of workshop participants, discussion may focus on studies involving populations with distinct perspectives and needs (e.g., seniors, youth, immigrants, or teachers). The workshop will also address challenges related to retention because, in many studies, continued engagement for follow-up phases is as crucial as initial recruitment.

Part of an interactive workshop series
Researchers are increasingly conducting studies in community settings and applying for grants that require documentation of real-world impact. Indeed, some funders now require components such as dissemination plans, stakeholder engagement, or community participation. To meet these new demands, researchers may wish to collaborate with non-academic groups and craft research questions and results that inform practice or policy. This series of interactive workshops shares the Bronfenbrenner Center for Translational Research’s extensive experience conducting research in real-world settings and translating empirical findings into practice. Each workshop addresses a key challenge that researchers face in doing translational research and provides practical tools for overcoming obstacles to conducting effective translational research.
