Building Trustworthiness with Community Members through a Data Literacy Program
$45K Finalists

Building trustworthiness of research and healthcare must begin with centering the expertise and wisdom of community members. This Data Literacy project emerges from our firm commitment to conducting research WITH community members at every step of the scientific discovery process. Data literacy is a key strategy to ensure that community members (as citizen scientists) have the tools and skills to access, interpret, question, and use data to promote meaningful transformation within their neighborhoods and communities.
