Asset Based Community Development (ABCD) Workshop

Asset Based Community Development (ABCD) Workshop

Asset-Based Community Development or ABCD is a strategy for sustainable community-driven development that focuses on the positive assets of a community rather than on its needs.  The ABCD concept has been largely developed by Northwestern University’s School of Education and Social Policy (http://www.abcdinstitute.org/).  ABCD seeks to build successful and lasting community collaborations between residents and institutions to improve a community’s health and quality of life.

Workshop attendees will learn how to build community connections and partnerships in support of medical research, education and practice that really work to impact community health. Expected participants will include CTSA librarians, researchers and administrators, public health workers, area health professionals, public and academic librarians, community health workers, Area Health Education Center (AHEC) Translational Advisory Boards (TABS).
