The Community-Campus Partnerships for Health newsletter announced: CCPH Forums, a new virtual hub for members of CCPH.

The CCPH Forums are a virtual hub for CCPH members and colleagues to post, comment on discussions, give advice or collaborate on all things community-campus partnerships. The CCPH Forums are a free resource that anyone can access, with forums specific to CBPRCBPR Jobs BoardCommunity-Engaged Scholarship, and -- for members only -- the CCPH Members Community Board. In addition to the usual postings of news items such as conferences and funding opportunities, what distinguishes CCPH Forums is the opportunity to start a discussion thread to ask questions or seek advice with all the responses on one page so that everyone can benefit from the information they gathered. You can subscribe and receive email notifications to any forum or thread by selecting the "Subscribe" button on the top right corner of the forum webpages."
