Event Description
A 6-Step Approach to Developing a Community Health Assessment is 2-day interactive training focused on community health assessments (CHA) - a process of collecting, analyzing, and reporting information about the needs, strengths, and assets in a community.
The workshop will provide participants with six (6) steps to plan, develop, and conduct a CHA. The CHA will aid in documenting and raising awareness about unmet community needs; identify and prioritize areas for improvements; and create a community-partnered process for drawing on assets to implement health improvements.
A 6-Step Approach to Developing a Community Health Assessment will be taught by Amy Carroll-Scott, PhD, MPH. Dr. Carroll-Scott is an Assistant Professor at the Drexel University Dornsife School of Public Health. Her research focuses on the social and contextual determinants of persistent health disparities and the application of social science and community-based participatory research methods to understanding and eliminating such disparities. She co-developed the curriculum used for this training and directed the Data & Democracy Statewide Training Initiative at the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research, providing research skills and health assessment methodology for community leaders.
