University of California, San Francisco
The University of California San Francisco study team co-created a three-part family training module with their Community Advisory Board and community agencies. The module consists of a facilitation guide and learning activities for families from communities that have disproportionately experienced the burdens of health and healthcare disparities. Part 2: The Importance of Health Research and the Promise of Partnership explores community-research partnerships as a way for families to advocate for the health and healthcare needs of their children, asserting that such partnerships can positively impact individual, family, and community health, critical building blocks to achieving health equity. Part 2, the crux of the module, is a three-hour parent advocacy training, comprising a facilitation guide, learning activities and a 15-minute video training module (which can be viewed as a stand-alone product or in accompaniment with the full three-hour parent advocacy training session). Part 2 training and video are presented in Spanish and English. Part 3: Opportunities to Partner and Participate is a 90-minute parent advocacy training, consisting of a facilitation guide and learning activities. The module was launched at the Child Health Equity Symposium on September 18, 2018.
