There is an increasing awareness that health is influenced by a variety of factors that were not traditionally considered impactful. This evolution in thinking has resulted in the need for public health to become increasingly interdisciplinary and relevant to the unique characteristics of communities that are affected by various health issues. In this chapter we introduce the Community, Research and Action (CRA) approach to understanding health undergirded by Boyer’s four types of scholarship—discovery, integration, application and teaching. Examples that exemplify the CRA approach and strategies to engage community members and scholars from diverse backgrounds are also discussed. In addition, guidance to implement the CRA approach in new or existing programs or research is provided.
