Rolanda L. Ward, PhD, State University of New York College at Fredonia and Keenan Gibbons, University of Buffalo
This interactive workshop has been designed for those who are developing community-based interventions that link University resources to community-based organizations. Participants will be given an overview of task forces and relevant theories that support community-driven public health interventions and structural changes at the regional level. In addition, participants will learn about key public health outcomes that help to improve access to resources for targeted populations. Presenters will discuss how public health and social work knowledge and skills are used to build University-community partnerships. Furthermore, presenters will discuss how and why this University-community partnership emerged to be the primary COVID-19 response team in a Western New York county. Presenters will share findings from program and research projects that help to improve ongoing interventions.
Participants will leave with a better understanding of task forces, University-community partnerships, and intervention research strategies.
