Our Community of Practice

A Community of Practice brings together individuals with common interests or goals, to share best practices and deepen knowledge through interaction in an ongoing basis.

The Edwin S.H. Leong Centre for Healthy Children’s Community of Practice is designed to support and advance knowledge in the area of community-engaged research for child health equity by providing expertise, workshops, and resources to our researchers, staff, trainees, and community partners. This results in the connection of people, exchange of ideas, and development of new knowledge relating to community engagement. 

Our Community of Practice fosters engagement and learning through four initiatives:

  • Community Engagement SeriesOne-hour webinars to discuss innovative community-engaged research projects and methods.
  • Trainee HubMonthly in-person meetings for graduate students, post-doctoral research fellows, and clinical trainees who are interested in learning about community-engaged research
  • Consultation Service. Complimentary support for members in the planning and development of their community engagement and knowledge mobilization needs.
  • Engagement Resource RepositoryOnline library of articles, toolkits and videos, regularly updated with new resources related to community engagement.

The Community of Practice is led by Dr. Priscilla Medeiros, Knowledge Mobilization and Community Engagement Specialist. For more information, please contact us at
