NJHI Learning Collaborative Session

Webinar

The NJHI: Small Communities Forging Hyperlocal Data Collaboratives webinar series presents

Amy Carroll-Scott, PhD, MPH

“How to Authentically Engage Residents in Your Work” led by Amy Carroll-Scott, PhD, MPH Associate Professor, Department of Community Health & Prevention Co-Lead, Policy & Community Engagement Core, Urban Health Collaborative

Community engagement is a key strategy for ensuring that broad community-health focused initiatives and related data-focused efforts include in their creation, planning and long-term work those residents most impacted by their success. Authentically engaging residents and the experiences and assets they hold can help well-intentioned collaboratives avoid the pitfalls many others experience, including inequitable or inaccessible planning or research processes, power imbalances, skills mismatches, mistrust, history of racism, and others. Join the NJHI: Small Communities Forging Hyperlocal Data Collaboratives Forging Team on Wednesday, September 22 from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. ET to discuss the opportunities in your work to engage residents, as well as some practical and theory-based tools to overcome barriers and bring the value of authentic engagement to your planning and sustainability.

Learning objectives:

  1. Understand what benefits resident engagement can bring to your work
  2. Discuss opportunities and challenges for using a resident engagement approach in your community
  3. Develop/ enhance your working knowledge of resident engagement principles, approaches, and tools

This NJHI webinar session is a grantee-only event. It is open to the NJHI: Small Communities Forging Hyperlocal Data Collaboratives grantees and their partners.
