Who they are and what they do

The Program in Community Engagement (PCE) is recruiting at least one Community Research Associate to advise and participate in strategic planning, implementation, evaluation, and/or dissemination of community-based health-related initiatives designed to promote health equity within our local communities. The ideal Community Research Associate is highly engaged in the community and possesses leadership skills. 

The Community Research Associate functions as a co-investigator, working closely with Wake Forest School of Medicine (WFSM) investigators on PCE activities. They are members of the Core Working Group, which serves as the executive council for the PCE, and the Stakeholder Advisory Committee, which serves as a community advisory board for PCE, attending regular meetings of these two groups. The Community Research Associates are PCE ambassadors to the community, contracted by WFSM. The Community Research Associate positions are renewed annually.
