COVID-19 continues to take its toll on us all, and many in health care and in research are feeling exhausted and even burnt out.  At the same time, the pandemic has disrupted the status quo and revealed opportunities for innovation and renewal.    The morning session will explore the broad impact of COVID-19 on Northern California and lessons learned from our community-wide response.  The afternoon session will focus on envisioning new ways of working together to address challenges that the pandemic has intensified, and opportunities it has uncovered.  A networking reception will conclude the meeting.

Poster Abstract Submission Form

The meeting will include a poster session featuring broadly engaged research teams partnering with stakeholders in clinical practice, community advocacy, public health, and/or public policy. We welcome poster submissions about stakeholder-engaged research collaborations in any phase of development that address health care challenges faced by our diverse communities.

Submission Deadline:  December 2nd, 2022

A partnership of community clinicians, practices, and UCSF

The San Francisco Bay Area Collaborative Research Network (SFBayCRN) is UCSF's primary care practice-based research network. SFBayCRN's mission is to facilitate mutually beneficial practice-based research partnerships between UCSF researchers and community-based primary care organizations, practices, and clinicians in the San Francisco Bay Area and Northern California. A unifying goal of our network is to support the development and dissemination of practice-based evidence to improve clinical practices and health outcomes in diverse communities. Our members include community-based clinicians, practices, health care organizations, and UCSF faculty.
