Our Services

    The OHSU Community Research Hub and CORC have built regional and statewide connections to incorporate research, training, networking and community forums that will help build Central Oregon’s capacity for grant funded research and ensure active community involvement in the research process.

    What types of expertise and research services can OHSU and CORC help with?
