Week 8: FOP Evaluations – Detroit Community-Engaged Research Program

Week 8: FOP Evaluations

One week left! It’s hard to believe that our time in this program has almost come to an end. I can say that working on the evaluations for Friends of Parkside has definitely been a learning curve. It was my first time leading a project like this, and it was much more challenging than I had initially thought. I was asked by my mentor, “What feedback do we want from the health fair?” This question is what I had to think about when deciding what I wanted to ask the attendees. It was because of this question that I had to understand Friends of Parkside’s history, its impact on the community, and the community itself. Through my research involving the past FOP health fair reports, as well as analyzing the results from this year’s health fair, I believe I’ve come to understand the importance of FOP, their work, and as well as how the community that they serve sees them. I’m hoping that the results from this project can be useful for FOP, and that they can be utilized in meaningful ways for the Parkside community.
