To promote COVID-19 research with emphasis on clinical trials and community-engaged research. Develop and implement research strategies that leverage current capabilities and community partnerships to promote COVID-19 research that assures inclusive participation and promising approaches for prevention, treatments, and cures. The overarching goal of the Arizona Community Engaged alliance is to conduct community-engaged research and outreach to increase COVID-19 awareness and education among communities disproportionately affected by COVID-19 and to reduce misinformation and mistrust.
AZ CEAL received entries from Arizona youth ages 14 to 25 years old who created messaging about COVID-19 masks and vaccines, or another pandemic-related health topics affecting youth. We need the Arizona community to participate and vote on their favorite submission in each of the four categories (Advertisement, toolkit, visual arts, and written piece).

To bolster research to help communities disproportionately affected by COVID-19, the National Institutes of Health is funding $29 million in additional grants for the NIH Community Engagement Alliance (CEAL) Against COVID-19 Disparities.
This funding was supported by the American Rescue Plan. The awards will provide $15 million to 11 teams already conducting research and outreach to help strengthen COVID-19 vaccine confidence and access, as well as testing and treatment, in communities of color. An additional $14 million will fund 10 new research teams to extend the reach of COVID-19 community-engaged research and outreach.
The NIH-funded Community Engagement Alliance against COVID-19 Health Disparities (CEAL) aims to provide trustworthy information to the people hardest-hit by the COVID-19 pandemic, including African Americans, Hispanics/Latinos and American Indians/Alaska Natives, with the goal of building long-lasting partnerships as well as improving diversity and inclusion in our research response to COVID-19.
COVID-19 Clinical Trials Scientific Committee
The COVID-19 Scientific Committee aims to lead system efforts associated with oversight, review and coordination of all COVID-19 research opportunities. Develop and implement research strategies that capitalize on current system capabilities and expertise to better position ourselves for future, high-impact COVID-19 research opportunities.
