Community  engagement  and  implementation  science  are essential  to  the  successful  translation  of  interventions  and  other  healthcare  advances  implemented  in  community  settings with  the  ultimate  goal of improving health outcomes.

CCTS works closely with UIC research teams to ensure that they meet their recruitment goals, that their studies include populations often underrepresented in research, and that their research findings can be translated into interventions that can be widely implemented.

They suggested how to connect with potential community stakeholders and provided names of people to contact. They also helped me review and revise my recruitment materials to improve the chances of potential participants being interested and contacting the research team.
