Successful Efforts in Community Engagement

This chapter presents examples of successful community engagement efforts in health promotion, evaluation, and research that demonstrate the principles of engagement discussed in Chapters 1 and 2. The authors asked representatives from federal health agencies to recommend case examples of the effective use of community engagement that were published in peer-reviewed journals from 1997 to the present. Of the examples submitted, 12 are presented here. This chap­ter summarizes the articles associated with each case, emphasizing collaboration and the way the case illustrates the principles of interest. Information is up to date as of the time of the article’s publication.
