The combined efforts of the Mather Institute, Center for Community Health (CCH), and learning and development partner – Illumina Interactive – have successfully built a virtual version of a Data Walk, an Innovative Way to Share Data with Communities (originally developed by The Urban Institute).

The Age Well Data Walk shares survey data reports from Years 1 and 2 of a 5 year landmark study of the impact of living in a Life Plan Community together with interview research findings. The overall goal of the longitudinal study is to examine the impact of transitioning to a Life Plan Community on resident health and wellness.

One way that the Center for Community Health (CCH) is helping translate research findings into practice more quickly is through Stakeholder-Academic Resource Panels (ShARPs)

Upcoming Opportunity:
This upcoming ShARP session is on the family experience for Spanish-speaking families on surgery day at Lurie Children’s Hospital.

We want to hear from:
 
Parents/caregivers to children who had surgery within the last 6 months at Lurie Children's Hospital and who:
  • Prefer to communicate in Spanish
  • Required interpretation services at any point during the surgery process
 
Sessions will take place:
Tuesday April 27, 2021 (6-8pm)
