Practicum site: Connecticut Department of Public Health in Hartford, but the project was statewide (2019)

Project description: My practicum experience involved the Connecticut State Health Assessment Planning at the Department of Public Health. My role was to help with the coordination and execution of focus groups to better understand the health needs and communities of various populations across the state. I also administered Community Health Priority surveys at DSS centers and FQHCs. In addition, I conducted inventory analysis of several hospital’s CHNA and CHA reports from around the state. The inventory identified frequency of priorities, high burden conditions, and community assets. This practicum opportunity allowed me to further my proficiency in achieving the MPH program core competencies and inter-professional competencies. It was a great opportunity to understand the role of inter-professional collaboration among a large range of external and internal stakeholders to complete the CT State Health Assessment.
