The Center for Public Health and Health Policy Research (CPHHPR) hosted three Mini-Summits on Minority Health to respond to the unique public health challenges facing its region. The Mini-Summits were unique community forums designed to unite and mobilize diverse stakeholders to address and improve minority health outcomes through a comprehensive action plan. Participants identified health concerns; developed goals and recommended culturally appropriate region specific strategies. Summit findings were compiled into proceedings and disseminated to participants to ensure bidirectional communication. The key recommendations gleaned from the proceedings led to the formation of the Suffolk County Minority Health Action Coalition (SMHAC) and Community Alliance for Research Empowering Social change (CARES), an academic community based research network. This document may prove beneficial to those interested in developing an infrastructure for Community Based Participatory Research.
