CH 182 Community Health Theory and Practice course conducts yearlong community-based participatory research project with City of Medford and the Medford Family Network
During the 2016-2017 academic year, a group of 10 students in the Community Health Theory & Practice (CH182) course conducted a year-long community-based participatory research project in Medford, MA under the guidance of Dr. Shalini Tendulkar and in partnership with the Medford Family Network and the City of Medford. This unique approach to research involves the community in every aspect of the research process and decision-making. The first semester was spent forming partnerships with community organizations and residents as well as co-constructing the research project. During the second semester, the students updated the city's community and immigrant resource guides and collected data from organizations serving Medford residents and from immigrant community members themselves. At the end of the course, the students created the "Medford Community Resource Guide", and presented their research findings to the community at Medford City Hall.
