Jeff,
Hello, This is Tracey Carr. I have been really sick over the past four or five days: They almost put me in the hospital. I talked my doctors out of it. I am sorry that I missed your call and did not email you back. One, I was so sick that I forgot too. and two, I was so sick that when I missed your call, I also did not see that I did until Sunday night. I called you yesterday several times. I tried to email you an attached email but they won't go through (Paul, in the community toolbox office told me that just now).

I really appreciate all that you have done. Would you still be so kind as to look at my document? I do not think that I did it correctly. I cannot attach it here nor can I send it without you sending me an email. Would you please let me know something? I value your judgement and trust what you say.

I do appreciate all that you have done!

Highest regards,
Tracey K. Carr


Thank you, You really helped me!!! I appreciate you!

I am wondering if anyone knows any good resources for presenting population health data? This includes examples of well put together reports (for example, the RWJF County Health Rankings, or the NYC Community Health Profiles). Thank you!

I NEED TO GET AN ANGER THAT I'M FEELING OFF MY CHEST. ALL OVER THE WEB SITES ARE SAYING TO CLEAR UP YOUR CREDIT WORTHYNESS. TAKE OUT A PERSONAL LOAN, BAD CREDIT OKAY, START OVER. I WAS FAIRLY WELL OFF FINANCIALLY (thanks to my first husband) AFTER HIS DEATH. I HAD 27 YEARS WITH HIM, WE HAD THREE BUSINESSES GOING AND WERE DOING OKAY UNTIL HE GOT SICK AND HAD TO GO SOUTH, WHERE HE DIED. I WAS WINED AND DINED BY A MAN THAT WAS GIVING ME EVERY INDICAATION THAT HE WAS WELL OFF. I WOUND UP MARRIED TO HIM ONLY TO FIND OUT THAT HE WAS A BAD BUSINESS MAN AND PUT ME INTO BANQURPCY ONCE (which I paid off) AND A FEW YEARS LATER HE DID THE SAME. I BACKED THIS MAN FINANCIALLY AND LOST EVERYTHING. NOT ONLY MONEY BUT PROPERTY. AT THE AGE OF 70 I LEFT THIS MAN, CAME TO MICHIGAN WHERE I WAS BORN TO TRY TO START OVER. THE STRESS OF ALL THIS CAUSED ME TO LOOSE EVEN MORE, MY HEALTH. TWO YEARS AGO I WAS TOLD I HAD COPD, WITH HEART FAILURE. I AM TRYING TO "START OVER" WITH THE FEW YEARS I HAVE LEFT AND I'M SPINNING WHEELS TRYING TO GET A $5,000.00 LOAN TO PAY OFF EXISTING BILLS, MANY OF WHICH ARE MEDICAL BILLS. THEY ADVERTISE "BAD CREDIT IS OKAY" AND LIST AMOUNTS UP TO 20,000/25,000. BUT I HAVE YET TO FIND ANYONE WHO LIVES UP TO THEIR ADVERTISING AND ARE WILLING TO GIVE ME A CHANCE. OH WELL, I GUESS I'LL JUST HAVE TO GO TO FAMILY TO GET A LOAN, BUT IT "DOES ANGER ME" THE WAY THEY WORD THEIR ADS. AND ALL MY PERSONAL INFORMATION IS ON THE WEB FOR EVERYONE TO SEE. THAK YOU FOR LETTING ME BITCH.

Hello,
I am totally confused, as I have read so much. I cannot figure out what precisely to put in the following:
1) Itemized Description of proposed my program.
2) Itemized Description of proposed pilot study (what is this?)
3) Itemized Description of proposed evaluation of the pilot study including a tool (Six Sigma, TQM) to improve the proposed piloted process
4) Itemized Description of what other health care organizations and/or NGOs have done to address my initiative.

I am following the Promoting Healthy Living and Preventing Chronic Disease An Action Planning Guide for Communities
A publication of the KU Work Group for Community Health and Development The University of Kansas
http://communityhealth.ku.edu/

Can you please provide examples where I can see precisely what to put in these documents. I have gathered all the data there is. I have my goal, vision, mission statement, strategies, and action plans, which are all evidence-based, that concern:
1. physical activity,
2. healthy eating,
3. tobacco use, and
4. access to care and preventive services.

I know my 5 strategies are:
1. providing information and enhancing skills
2. modifying access, barriers, and opportunities
3. enhancing services and support
4. changing the consequences (incentives)
5. modifying policies and broader conditions

My framework for Promoting Healthy Living is the IOM (2003):
1. Assessment & Collaborative Planning
2. Targeted Action & Intervention
3. Community & System Change
4. Widespread Behavior Change
5. Improvement in Population level Outcomes

I have planned for new or modified programs, policies, and practices in the strategies. I do not know what section (e.g., description of proposed program, pilot study, evaluation of pilot study) I need to put this in.

However, I have not been able to meet with anybody in town - I have only had 8 days to look this up. I do know from talking to people on the phone that my county in Arkansas has very little active coalitions due to budget cuts and losing funding.

I am not getting a grant or implementing social marketing. My teacher knows that I have not met with anyone - I cannot give details of meetings.

My initiative deals with Pope County's community sectors of the: business community, health organizations, school district, and broader community.

My teacher does not want us to give her a detailed logic model.
Plus this can only be 5-7 pages long. APA 6th edition, doubled spaced, with citations. The reference page can be page 8+. I am totally vexed.

Can you please help. I have done all the work. I cannot find examples anywhere on line except for CHNAs that have not-for-profit hospitals doing community needs assessments. Yes, I am bringing the hospital in as a potential collaborator, but I am to act as if there is no coalitions, or action taking place. Plus, no one in the community seems to want to help with the severe problem of CVD, cancer, diabetes, tobacco use, etc....I know what are my modified risks. I know what are my key drivers. I know what are my vulnerable populations.

I just do not know what to place in what sections.
Can you please help?
Thank you ,

There may not be an answer for this question, but here goes: Is it better to have the awards ceremony first and then the luncheon or vice versa? I realize every situation is different, but is there a general rule for this?

Hello,
I am a doctoral student who is using your resources to guide a community based assessment survey. Do you have any validity or reliability stats for Community Tool Box as a whole or from any of the examples and resources you offer?
Thanks so much!

How do I go about getting approval from an charity organization. Please let me know who I would contact, to use the name to be used to ask for donations through my business. A portion of the sale I would like donated. I'm sure there are legal steps to do this.

Hello.

I'm a licensed social worker who's looking to make a career change back into human services. I specialized in advocacy, organizing, and agency management but have been in the corporate world for the past 40 years. If there are any recommendations for how to get "involved," either on a volunteer or part-time salary basis, I'd appreciate any recommendations.

Thanks.

We bought a brand new van,diesel & cash no worries in MA a utility vehicle which has a franchise with terminal and my husband drives it. Sometimes we also used it for hire in any occasions. He drives it 4 x a wk. He earns a max.of P2,200-2,500 and min.of P1,200-1.500/day esp.now there's no classes. Which do we more prefer choosing the regular earnings or make it for hire that rates P3,000 per transaction almost 90km, overnight fuel inclusive, tolls are charged to the customer. I'm confused if we be benefit on that. Can you help me with this.If possible asap because there inquiries, and was taken for granted of the benefit if there is. Thanks

1. If you were a barangay chairman, how will you address the issue of the people working in the informal economy?

2. Do you agree with the informal economy, even though it may be unfair to those who pay the right taxes? Why or why not?

3. As a leader of a community, how will you alleviate poverty? What steps or actions would you take? Explain.

Thanks

Dear Advisor of Community Tool Box,

A small "public library" committee is trying to start action to that goal in Byron, MN, a rich, professional suburb of Rochester Minnesota with the Mayo Clinic. Our community started as a small 600 pop. rural farm community and has grown over the years to a bedroom community of Mayo Clinic professionals, senior citizens, and a superb flourishing elite school system. We would like to have a small library. We have received funding support of the Byron Community Foundation to develop an information sheet for distribution to Byron organizations for a later community support survey. I have read your helps and they're great, but wonder if you might have any specific info for our situation. appreciate your wonderful website.
