This research, led by PhD Students Sunny Jiao and Allie Slemon at Capacity, found a lack of clarity across the literature on how outreach is conceptualized, the central elements of outreach, and how the ‘success’ of outreach is empirically measured.
Working with Dr. Vicky Bungay and Dr. Adrian Guta, they have led an important piece of work around the need to better understand how outreach can effectively build trust and health equity, as well as end stigma.
