Molecular types of methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus and methicillin-sensitive S. aureus strains causing skin and soft tissue infections and nasal colonization, identified in community health centers in New York City.
In November 2011, a research and learning collaborative project with six community health centers in the New York City metropolitan area was launched to determine the nature (clonal type) of community-acquired Staphylococcus aureus strains causing skin and soft tissue infections (SSTIs). It found that of 63 patients with S. aureus infections, 16 of the colonizing isolates were MRSA, and 14 were MSSA, and the majority of the colonizing isolates belonged to the USA300 clonal group.

The effectiveness of clinician feedback in the treatment of depression in the community mental health system.
This article described the development and evaluation of a clinician feedback intervention for use in community mental health settings. The Community Clinician Feedback System (CCFS) was developed in collaboration with a community partner to meet the needs of providers working in such community settings. Satisfaction ratings of the CCFS indicated that the system was widely accepted by clinicians and patients.

Understanding the supports of and challenges to community engagement in the CTSAs.
The researchers sought to understand the supports and challenges experienced by multiple Clinical and Translational Science Awards programs as they pursued community engagement. The interviews identified three support themes, including: funding, existing relationships with communities, and leadership and a partnership approach at the institution. Six challenge themes arose: need for capacity development, lack of positive relationships with communities, lack of leadership, funding constraints, time and staff constraints, and unsustainable models.
