To better understand the needs of the community in Coban, we’re conducting a community needs assessment (CNA). The purpose of the CNA is to broadly evaluate the basic needs within the community such as health, safety, housing, food, water, education, and employment. Students and several health professionals who reside in the community interviewed patients at the clinic. These students and health professionals are from the disciplines of social work, psychology, and nursing. Our hope is to better understand and meet the needs of the community by gathering these data. Further, we plan to apply for grant funding and these data will enable us to share quantitative assessment data with prospective funders.
