Community-Based Participatory Research: How to Identify Social Determinants of Health and Engage Hard-to-Reach Populations in Your Community

Tuesday, June 28, 2016, 1 to 2 p.m. EDT — Many organizations, including health care and community based organizations, are working hard to address the impact of social, economic, and environmental factors that negatively affect the overall health of a community. These social determinants of health can be difficult to identify, disproportionately strike hard-to-reach populations, and require targeted responses that engage members and help them stay connected to appropriate services, treatments, and interventions. During this webinar, experts from HMA Community Strategies (HMACS) and the San Francisco Jewish Women’s Fund will outline one such initiative to explore qualitatively what the most important needs of a specific population are, and the solutions that they suggest would be helpful.

While targeted specifically to single, Jewish mothers in the San Francisco area, the initiative offers important lessons for other organizations attempting to learn more deeply about the needs of their populations, using a community-based participatory research model.
