Everyone from religious leaders to educators to law enforcement come together through the Community Advisory and Review Council (CARC) to give University of Chicago faculty feedback on the best ways to do their research on the South Side – all while learning important health lessons from the research presented.
The ITM launched the CARC in 2007 to forge a partnership between South Side community leaders and UChicago researchers. The ten CARC members meet at least eight times each year to review faculty’s research proposals and give their feedback. Since the program began, about 30 local leaders have served on the CARC, which has given community input on more than 65 faculty research presentations.
Meetings are held eight times each year between January and May, rotating at locations within the community. Sessions are held from 6 to 8 p.m. on the 2nd Monday of these months.
