Service description

Connect with community members and organizations to find willing study participants through our long-established and trusted community partnerships.  The SC CTSI has a vast network of partners representing most of the diverse populations in Los Angeles.  Using culturally competent approaches, we can facilitate relationships with these communities to provide you entrée to hard-to-reach populations.  The SC CTSI also offers review of project recruitment materials and tips on how to modify them to be most effective in your target population. 

Benefits for users

Users can receive first-hand experience and build on established relationships for a crucial component of research, rather than starting from square one.

Our entire range of services is completely free of charge, and can continue until your needs have been met.  In instances when more ongoing and hands on assistance is needed (e.g., focus group facilitation, data analysis), we can work with your team to establish a reasonable fee for service.
