Shawnda Schroeder, research associate professor at the Center for Rural Health (CRH), and four other University of North Dakota colleagues presented on the Benefits of Developing Interdisciplinary Teams and Working with Rural Communities to Conduct Research with a Local Impact at the WONCA World Rural Health Conference held in Albuquerque, New Mexico, October 11–15.
Presenters discussed community-based participatory research, the importance of interdisciplinary teams both within and outside of academia, how to develop strong teams, how to work with rural communities, and the importance of community involvement in the research process. Each presenter also gave a 15-minute example of their own research that they had done with rural communities, sharing the process, the involvement of the community and interdisciplinary team, and results of the research.
