Health Education Working Group #2

As part of CIS of Chicago’s commitment to supporting heath education partners, this working group hosted a conversation about evaluation and assessment of school-based programs for a dozen of our health partners. 

Aleia Mays, CIS of Chicago intern, reviewed the basics of assessment and evaluation and shared several resources with partners about assessment tools partners can use to measure and judge the impact of their programming.

Several health partners generously shared their assessment practices with the rest of the group.

  • Peer Health Exchange (Brittany Merritt)
  • Respiratory Health Association (Amy O’Rourke and Amanda Weiler)
  • Chicago Women’s Health Center (Scout Bratt)
  • Common Threads (Stephanie Folkens)
