I have a not-so-hidden agenda. I want more researchers in public health and the social sciences to root themselves in community.

1. Listen up and tell their stories (with care).

2. Lead with love (and salutogenesis).

3. Relationships build power (so let’s honor the time it takes to build a partnership).

Challenges to community-centered research exist — but we must push through them.
