Thank you all for attending the 2nd National Mosque-PCOR Event!

This multi-stakeholder symposium aims to demonstrate and build upon the adoption of the Mosque-PCOR Toolkit through the Community Health Worker channel. This is the second national Mosque-PCOR event that highlights the Muslim community efforts in establishing a culture of engagement for patient-centered outcomes research. The first event in October 2019 introduced PCOR concepts to combat health disparities and delivered a Mosque-based PCOR toolkit for stakeholders. Since then, the Mosque-PCOR toolkit has been disseminated through community health workers and adopted by the first-ever Patient-Centered Free and Charitable Clinic. Today, our symposium presents the implementation essence of the one-year PCORI funded project, Equipping Muslims with PCOR-Based, Action-Oriented Research Tool (EMPART), by bringing together a diverse set of stakeholders representing and elaborating on the universal applicability of this tool.
