overview

Community Health Development is a domain at the intersection of Community Development, Health Promotion, and Public Health. As Director of the Center for Community Health Development my research interests focus on learning how to more effectively increase community problem-solving capacity. Using the Partnership Approach, a socio-ecological framework and social determinants of health perspective, our projects examine factors influencing population health status and intervention strategies to improve health status and access to care. A key component of these activities are community health status assessments both as a data collection tool and community organizing focal point.
