Using Qualitative Methods to Evaluate Community Food Work

  • CUNY School of Public Healthy and Health Policy 55 West 125th Street New York, NY, 10027 United States (map)

Please join us for our fourth session of our Community Food Evaluation Workshop: Using Qualitative Methods to Evaluate Community Food Work.

Participants will learn how to use focus groups, observations, and other qualitative methods in assessing the impact of their community food work. We will provide an overview of qualitative methods, as well as relevant community food work examples of tools that organizations may choose to use. We will also practice developing and implementing qualitative approaches.

This session will be led by a guest speaker - Emma Vignola. Emma is a CUNY Urban Food Policy Fellow and doctoral student at the CUNY School of Public Health in Community Health and Social Sciences. She has worked in child health research and in public health workforce training both in the US and internationally. She earned a BA in Neuroscience from Barnard College and an MSPH in International Health and Epidemiology from Johns Hopkins School of Public Health. Emma is the lead author on the recent Institute report: Expanding Immigrant Access for Food Benefits in New York City, and an expert in qualitative methods.

We recommend this session for participants with a limited understanding of qualitative approaches, who have an interest in increasing their understanding and practical skills for implementing these sorts of methods.

We look forward to seeing you there!
