COMMUNITY | INNER-CITY COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT NEEDS ASSESSMENT

The Cumming School of Medicine (CSM) seeks to strengthen its responsiveness and relevance to the community agencies with which it collaborates. As such, the office of Strategic Partnerships and Community Engagement conducted a needs assessment around partnerships for improved health among Calgary’s inner-city medically underserved populations.

This needs assessment set out to determine the quality of the CSM’s engagement with strategic partners in Calgary’s inner city; explore a network of partnerships around which to potentially organize future collaborations; and provide insight into existing and needed infrastructure within the CSM to support community-engaged learning, research and service.
