Mon 2 - Defining Community & Developing a Co-Equal Partnership

Defining Community and Developing a Co-Equal Partnership: Academic and Community Perspectives
Lisa Sanchez-Johnson U of C & Xichel Woods, Greater Humboldt Park Community of Wellness

This is the old home presentation, cause spent many years living in Humboldt Park in Chicago. It's a huge Puerto Rican neighborhood and one of the fewer places in the northern u.s. where you can develop a taste for corn on the cob with mayo, cheese and lime on top, or rice ice cream (remember the rice ice cream has a raisin in the bottom, that's how you tell it apart from the coconut ones). I'll definitely be hitting it later to get my fix.

First thing... see a chapter by Israel in the book Community-Based Participatory Research for Health (2003) where the principles of CBPR are outlined well. Make sure your community understands these principles.

3 stages of CBPR implementation
  1. Identification
  2. Development
  3. Maintenance
OK, I drifted away a bit here, as I started reviewing lit for my paper while listening.
