Research Into Action Webinar: Administering Youth Public Health Surveys in Rural Communities

Wednesday, June 9, 2021 – CADCA was proud to present this installment of its Research Into Action webinar series on Wednesday, June 9, from 2-3 pm EDT. Guest speaker Leonardo Kattari, MSW, discussed his recent article, “Community-Driven Approach for Youth Health Survey Administration and Data Utilization,” published in Health Promotion Practice in 2021. Mr. Kattari discussed the article’s findings regarding community engagement strategies to promote local school participation in statewide youth public health surveys, particularly schools in rural communities. He also presented on the importance of localized data in selecting effective interventions to improve youth health and how coalitions can apply these findings in their own youth survey efforts.
