Alan Richmond, MSW, Executive Director of Community-Campus Partnerships for Health (CCPH), is a global leader in advocating for the increased role of communities in research. Richmond has played significant roles locally and internationally to advance community engagement in health research, including the NIH Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) program. 

As Executive Director of CCPH, Richmond is advancing the organization's commitment to social justice and health equity. His understanding of the importance of ethics in research and its influence on community engagement was deepened through a fellowship in 2016 at the Brocher Foundation in Geneva, Switzerland. In August 2017, he facilitated the inaugural national training session Structural Inequality: An On the Ground View. This highly experiential session provides a historic review of equity to develop and expand the understanding of structural and historic factors contributing to racism in America. 

Richmond serves as the principal investigator of CCPH's PCORI-funded project, Patient Engagement: Enhancing Culturally Responsive Healthcare. In addition, he is a highly sought after national speaker and provides leadership to multiple external projects across the country.

Richmond holds an MSW from Ohio State University. He is a certified facilitator for the Poverty Simulation, Intercultural Developmental Inventory, and ToP Facilitation Method. He strongly believes in the work of PCORI and promotes increased participation of community and patient organizations in its work.
