Week 5 – Detroit Community-Engaged Research Program

Week 5

I can’t believe it’s week five already! Things are moving fast and my work with HVR has been pretty consistent yet very entertaining. I have helped out at 5 farmers market dates so far and each one has been very different- we’ve had live entertainment, arts and crafts, and lots of yummy food. I find the market to be such a fun gathering place for the community. Everyone knows each other and many of them remember my name each time they see me, which makes me smile! I’ve also spent a lot of time lately creating health content for the HVR website. I really enjoy this aspect of my project because I want to make health resources accessible and easy to comprehend no matter your health literacy level. I might even want to continue making this type of content in my future public health work!

    Hi Jillian,

    I am so glad to hear that you are having a great time at your community site! It’s always nice to help educate people about health information considering that the American healthcare system is so expensive. I am also thrilled to hear that its something you want to continue in your career 🙂
