Using Community Health Assessment to Teach and Explore Health Status Disparities
Sullivan, Marianne; Levine, Jack
Journal of Health Education Teaching, v5 n1 p20-27 2014
Introduction: Community health assessment (CHA) is a useful tool for identifying health status disparities at the community level. Developing the skills of master's level public health students to conduct CHA addresses a number of the Association of Schools of Public Health Core competencies for graduate public health education. Teaching Procedures: This article reports on the experience of conducting and analyzing a CHA of disparities in access to autism services among low-income Latinos in Nassau County, NY. Discussion: Conducting a CHA as part of the course helped to illustrate academic concepts, and revealed how disparities in access to services and service provision may ultimately lead to disparities in outcomes for low-income Latino children with ASDs.
