Health Promot Pract 2019 Feb 17:1524839919826582. Epub 2019 Feb 17.

1 Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Atlanta, GA, USA.

Emergence of a novel infectious disease, such as pandemic influenza, is the one global crisis most likely to affect the greatest number of people worldwide. Because of the potentially severe and contagious nature of influenza, a rapid multifaceted pandemic response, which includes nonpharmaceutical interventions (NPIs) and effective strategies for communication with the public are essential for a timely response and mitigating the spread of disease. A web-based questionnaire was administered via email in July 2015 to 62 Public Health Emergency Preparedness (PHEP) directors across jurisdictions that receive funding through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention PHEP cooperative agreement.

Health Promot Pract 2019 Feb 14:1524839919830927. Epub 2019 Feb 14.

1 University of Indianapolis, Indianapolis, IN, USA.

Health advocacy is a central responsibility for health educators and public health practitioners, as documented clearly in our professional competencies. Professional organizations such as the Society for Public Health Education and the American Public Health Association undertake frequent advocacy initiatives and strive to engage their members in advocacy strategies on a regular basis. Despite this understanding and advocacy training requirements in academic preparation programs for public health professionals, students and emerging professionals often lack advocacy experience.

Restor(y)ing Health: A Conceptual Model of the Effects of Digital Storytelling.

Health Promot Pract 2019 Feb 8:1524839918825130. Epub 2019 Feb 8.

3 Washington State University, Pullman, WA, USA.

We currently see an interdisciplinary shift toward a "participatory turn" in health research and promotion under which community engagement, shared decision making and planning, and the use of visual and digital methods have become paramount. Digital storytelling (DST) is one such innovative and engaging method increasingly used in applied health interventions, with a growing body of research identifying its value. Despite its increasing use, a standard approach to empirically assess the impacts on individuals participating in DST interventions does not currently exist. Read More

A Self-Management Training Intervention: Perceptions and Practices of Community Health Workers in South Africa.

Health Promot Pract 2019 Jan 7:1524839918820038. Epub 2019 Jan 7.

1 University of Missouri, Columbia, MO, USA.

Background: While community health workers (CHWs) are increasingly being used as a strategy for increasing health care access, particularly in rural communities, interventions are needed to improve their skill sets in inspiring health behavior change, both for themselves and among their community clients. Self-management (SM) education interventions have shown to improve health behaviors and well-being.

Purpose: This article reports on systematic, in-depth interviews conducted with rural CHWs in South Africa to understand (1) their motivation for participating in SM training, (2) skills gained from training and (3) perceived impact of training on CHW health behavior, both personally and as health professionals.

Training Community Residents to Address Social Determinants of Health in Underresourced Communities.

Health Promot Pract 2019 Jan 7:1524839918820039. Epub 2019 Jan 7.

2 Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine, New Orleans, LA, USA.

Disparities in chronic disease and life expectancy remain a significant public health problem and are largely attributable to social determinants of health. Community health workers (CHWs) promote health equity through individual- and community-level activities, and leadership and advocacy skills training make CHWs more likely to catalyze structural change. CHWs are increasingly being integrated into clinical practices to support care management, creating a need for new grassroots community-level advocates. Read More

Enhancing Capacity of Community-Academic Partnerships to Achieve Health Equity: Results From the CBPR Partnership Academy.

Health Promot Pract 2018 Dec 29:1524839918818830. Epub 2018 Dec 29.

1 University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, USA.

Community-based participatory research (CBPR) is an equitable partnership approach that links academic researchers, community organizations, and public health practitioners to work together to understand and address health inequities. Although numerous educational materials on CBPR exist, few training programs develop the skills and knowledge needed to establish effective, equitable partnerships. Furthermore, there are few professional development opportunities for academic researchers, practitioners, and community members to obtain these competencies in an experiential co-learning process.

Using Youth Participatory Action Research as a Health Intervention in Community Settings.

Health Promot Pract 2018 Dec 21:1524839918818831. Epub 2018 Dec 21.

2 Arizona State University, Tempe, AZ, USA.

Youth participatory action research (YPAR) emphasizes positive youth development by engaging young people as co-researchers and change agents on complex issues to produce solutions that are relevant to youth. YPAR has primarily been used in classroom and youth organization settings, which means there are very few examples of its usage in other community-based settings or as a health intervention approach. Additionally, there is a need for further study of YPAR implementation processes and the effect on youth development and well-being outcomes. Read More

Ecological Approaches to Teen Pregnancy Prevention: An Examination of Evidence-Based Interventions.

Health Promot Pract 2018 Nov 28:1524839918815463. Epub 2018 Nov 28.

1 Texas A&M University, College Station, TX, USA.

Over the past 20 years, teenage birth rates in the United States have declined substantially but continue to persist among certain populations. During this time period, a series of rigorously tested teen pregnancy prevention (TPP) programs were developed, and a number of evidence-based interventions (EBIs) emerged. In April 2017, researchers reviewed EBIs in TPP and examined each program's socioecological levels of intervention, measurements approaches, and other ecological aspects. Read More

Resources to Reduce Underage Drinking Risks and Associated Harms: Social Ecological Perspectives.

Health Promot Pract 2019 Mar 23;20(2):160-166. Epub 2018 Nov 23.

2 Texas A&M University, College Station, TX, USA.

Underage college student alcohol consumption results in adverse consequences for students, colleges, and communities. Unfortunately, college health practitioners have invested time and effort implementing interventions that either fail to account for the complexity of this public health problem or are not evidence-based. Consequently, in September 2015, the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism published CollegeAIM, which was developed to support higher education administrators and campus health/wellness professionals in selecting appropriate interventions for reducing harmful and underage drinking.

Partnership Processes to Develop SHE Tribe: A Healthy Lifestyle Intervention.

Health Promot Pract 2018 Nov 20:1524839918812428. Epub 2018 Nov 20.

2 Design and Action Team, Fort Worth, TX, USA.

Chronic diseases, like diabetes and heart disease, disproportionately impact women of color as compared to White women. Community-engaged and participatory approaches are proposed as a means to address chronic disease health disparities in minority communities, as they allow for tailoring and customization of strategies that align with community needs, interests, and priorities. While community-based participatory research (CBPR) is a framework that offers a clear set of principles to guide intervention design and development, the complexity and diversity of community contexts make it challenging to anticipate all of the possible pathways to implementation.

1 University of Arkansas System, Little Rock, AR, USA.

Traditional evaluation tools are oftentimes ill-suited for use in community settings where intervention outcomes of interest may occur at multiple levels and are influenced by interacting factors. Ripple effects mapping (REM) is a participatory technique engaging stakeholders to visually map project/program efforts and results to collect impact data. Using appreciative inquiry, the method helps participants and evaluators understand context for changes resulting from program experiences and is particularly well suited for community-based, participatory programs where impacts often occur beyond the individual level.

Hispanic Students' Perceptions About HIV/STI Testing and Prevention: A Mixed-Methods Study in a Hispanic-Serving University.

Health Promot Pract 2018 Sep 25:1524839918801590. Epub 2018 Sep 25.

1 Community Based Research Institute, Florida International University, Miami, FL, USA.

Hispanic young adults in the United States are disproportionately affected by HIV and should be considered a priority for prevention efforts. The purpose of this study was to explore perceptions and beliefs of English-speaking students (aged 18-24 years) at a Hispanic-serving university about HIV/sexually transmitted infection (STI) testing and prevention to increase acceptance and adoption of services. Four major themes emerged from four qualitative focus groups (n = 30 students) and were corroborated by an optional anonymous survey (n = 24 surveys): (a) preferences for HIV/STI testing services, (b) essential HIV/STI testing information, (c) preferred delivery method of HIV/STI testing information, and (d) culturally appropriate message design with Hispanic young adults.

3 University of Alabama at Birmingham, Birmingham, AL, USA.

In the United States, about 11% (26,393) of those diagnosed with breast cancer in 2016 will be young or less than 45 years old. Young breast cancer survivors, compared to older cancer survivors, are a disparate group that experience higher incidence of advanced disease, greater mortality, and poorer quality of life, and are often faced with difficulty locating support that meet the unique needs of young women. The Gulf States Young Breast Cancer Survivor Network, composed of three sister networks, formed a partnership aimed at harnessing the power of social media to reach and impact the lives of young women with breast cancer.

In rural American Indian (AI) communities, where supermarkets are rare, tribally owned and operated convenience stores are an important food source. Food environment measures for these settings are needed to understand and address the significant diet-related disparities among AIs. Through a tribal-university partnership that included tribal health and commerce representatives from two Native Nations in rural southeastern Oklahoma, we developed the Nutrition Environment Measures Survey for Tribal Convenience Stores (NEMS-TCS) to inform the development and evaluation of a healthy food retail intervention.

1 University of Alabama at Birmingham, Birmingham, AL, USA.

African American women report low participation in physical activity and are disproportionately burdened by related conditions (obesity, breast, and colon cancer). Physical activity interventions have shown promising results among African American women, but most studies in this area have focused on short-term increases. More enduring changes in health behavior will be needed to eliminate existing health disparities. Read More

Successful implementation of the Food & Fitness Initiative depended on community partners transforming complex systems to support healthy eating and active living, while addressing health equity. To apply systems thinking in diverse communities and in partnership with stakeholders who had differing levels of education and experience, we assembled a clear conceptual framework, an effective toolkit, and multiple opportunities to build capacity. This article describes the ways that we deployed systems thinking within the initiative, both collectively and at individual sites, and what we learned. Read More

How Food & Fitness Community Partnerships Successfully Engaged Youth.

Health Promot Pract 2018 09;19(1_suppl):34S-44S

3 Nuestra Comida, A Project of Nuestras Raíces, Holyoke, MA, USA.

Authentic youth engagement was a central component of the Food & Fitness (F&F) Initiative, a 9-year community-based intervention, whose goal was to ensure that all children have equitable access to healthy food and built environments that promote safe physical activity. The youth engagement component focused on strategies and structures that would support a model framework for youth involved in F&F community partnerships. These strategies empowered youth by providing the leadership and technical skills needed in collaborative efforts to sustain change in communities with inequities, where structural racism and inequities result in poor health outcomes for children.

Lessons Learned From Food & Fitness About Building Successful Partnerships: Focus, Capacity, and Sustainability.

Health Promot Pract 2018 09;19(1_suppl):115S-124S

1 University of Michigan School of Public Health, Ann Arbor, MI, USA.

Approaches undertaken by the Food & Fitness (F&F) community partnerships demonstrate that engaging community residents in the process of creating systems change strengthens the ability of neighborhoods, organizations, and institutions to foster and sustain those changes over time. The F&F partnerships were established to increase access to locally grown food and safe places for physical activity for children and families in communities with inequities across the United States. A critical focus of this initiative has been to use community-determined approaches to create changes in policies, infrastructures, and systems that will lead not only to change but also to sustainable change that positively influences health equity.
