Community of Practice (CoP)

Community of practice Venn diagram

Members of the CBESS Community of Practice are currently being recruited from local and state partners, businesses, individuals, and organizations. They may be bilingual (Spanish-English) or another stakeholder in STEM-healthcare education, practice, research, or business in the Northern Nevada community. Families of our Student Researchers will also be recruited as stakeholders into the Community of Practice. The overall purpose of the CoP is to act as a well-grounded external advisory committee. CoP participants will provide input on topics and content relevant to the healthcare workforce in the region and needs of the local community. Members of the CBESS Community of Practice will also help with recruitment efforts, provide role models and program presenters, offer feedback on project development, and refine CBESS benchmarks and objectives. Ultimately, one of the major objectives of CBESS is to maintain a strong Community of Practice that can transcend beyond the NIH funded period, leading to the institutionalization and sustainability of CBESS.
