Community Health Development is a domain at the intersection of Community Development, Health Promotion, and Public Health. As Founding Director and Co-PI 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.
