  1. Building community for health : lessons from a seven-year-old neighborhood/university partnership.

    Article - En anglais

    This article presents two case studies highlighting the role of community conflict in the process of community empowerment.

    A graduate program for community health nurses (CHNs) in a large Midwestern city formed a partnership with a diverse, integrated neighborhood for the dual purposes of enhancing the community's capacity to improve its own health and teaching CHNs community organizing as a means to improve health.

    Central to the partnership are a broad definition of health, trust developed through long-term involvement, a commitment to reciprocity, social justice, and Freire's model of adult learning.

    Two initiatives that gave rise to major conflicts between community groups are analyzed.
