Alliance for Research in Chicagoland Communities (ARCC)
From 2009 to 2013, the Asian Health Coalition is a member of the Alliance for Research in Chicagoland Communities (ARCC). ARCC is a program of the Community-Engaged Research Center at the Northwestern University Clinical and Translational Science Institute, which is funded in part by a grant from the National Institutes of Health. Its mission is to build equitable and collaborative partnerships between Chicago area communities and Northwestern University for research that leads to measureable improvement in community health. ARCC supports community-based participatory research (CBPR) by providing seed grants, capacity-building workshops and one-on-one technical assistance, partnership facilitation, monthly information and resource updates, advocacy for supportive institutional policies, and other activities.
ARCC is guided by a steering committee of community- and faith -based organizations from across the city as well as faculty at Northwestern University.
