Collaboratory

The PTBi Collaboratory is a forum jointly sponsored by PTBi California and PTBi East Africa to facilitate open interchange of ideas and information to collectively develop solutions that will decrease the global burden of prematurity. We aim to foster transdisciplinary collaboration among unlikely partners. Each Collaboratory will feature a unique group of speakers who will lead interactive discussions to describe current knowledge, identify gaps and generate new solutions among collaborators and communities across California and East Africa.

Housing and Preterm Birth: Community-Academic Partnership for Research and Action

5:00 - 7:00pm PST
Oberndorf Auditorium, UCSF Medical Center at Mission Bay
1855 4th Street, San Francisco

A light dinner will be served beginning at 4:30pm

Community-academic partnerships are fundamental to the pursuit of research done differently. The UCSF California Preterm Birth Initiative (PTBi-CA) is proud to partner with the San Francisco State Health Equity Institute and four leading community-based organizations to engage and build the knowledge of our inaugural cohort of Benioff Community Innovators-- 10 women from San Francisco who are teamed up with SF State MPH students to explore programmatic and policy solutions that focus on the link between poor housing conditions and preterm birth.  

The students and innovators are using creative and traditional research methods to raise the voices of women and gather perspectives from service providers, agency staff and policy makers. Their largely qualitative research will promote healthy birth outcomes for women in San Francisco. 

Please join us to learn more about the community based participatory research partnership and opportunities to participate in this work.

This event is hosted by the California Preterm Birth Initiative (PTBi-CA) in partnership with SFSU Health Equity Institute, San Francisco Black Infant Health, the Homeless Prenatal Program, Urban Services YMCA, and the Women's Community Clinic.
