Since Fred Hutch is based in Seattle, investigators partnered with community members to establish a satellite field office, called the Center for Community Health Promotion (CCHP), in the Lower Yakima Valley. We have formed a Community Action Board (CAB), comprised of community members, representatives from local community-based organizations, clinic systems, and hospitals. CAB members act as liaisons between their communities and researchers. The CAB helps identify research topics of interest to the community, influences decisions taken by CCHP staff and investigators with regard to prioritizing CBPR projects, and identifies ways to recruit participants for projects, and engages additional partners for projects. Over the years, the CAB has guided CCHP staff and investigators on a number of CBPR intervention projects around topics such as cancer prevention, cancer support, diabetes prevention and self-management, reducing pesticide exposure among children, and reducing obesity among Latino adults and children.
