Brown Among Partnership Development and Sustainability Support Program (PDSS) 2024-2025 Awardees

Dr. Angela Brown, Professor of Medicine in the Cardiovascular Division, is among this year’s awardees for the Partnership Development and Sustainability Support Program with the Washington University School of Medicine ICTS.

Her proposal, Community Wholeness in Fountain Park: Creating a Meaningful Research Agenda for Health Equity is described below:

Summary: A partnership between Centennial Christian Church and the Our Community Our Health (OCOH) team began as a COVID-19 response. OCOH maintains a recurring schedule and “pops up” a mobile vaccine clinic alongside food ministry services. The work has been driven by aligning university resources with community priorities. In the next phase of this partnership, we will: 1) identify and rank community priorities surrounding social determinants of health; 2) set partnership recommendations; and 3) create a meaningful action agenda grounded in community-based participatory research and human-centered design to advance health equity in Fountain Park.
