Through community soundings in community spaces and in places such as community suppers, food banks, BBQs and coffee shops, the research team asked two questions:
- What is going well for you?
- What are your biggest headaches?
The response to those two question provided a snap shot into the social determinants of health for those rarely consulted and not acknowledged in a prosperous community.
Community leaders identified through the community sounding process were hired and trained to conduct a community survey to build on those initial findings. The survey further defined factors that impact health for those living in marginalized communities.
