We enter communities aware that while we may be experts in our field, we're not experts in the culture and context of that community.
Community wellness programs aren't 1 size fits all. So rather than assume that generic content will fit a range of communities, we use formative research to inform our work. We do this through interviews with community leaders and community members, tours of the community, and community assessments. With lots of input, we then feel ready to tailor our messaging to fit their unique needs – whether it be through health materials or training of local program staff.
When we can make health information relevant to our intended audience, our programs can promote understanding and behavior change.
