The sample included 3213 park users from 48 parks in high poverty neighborhoods in Los Angeles sur...

Utilizing comparative case methods and in-depth qualitative data from a diverse sample of 14 urban congregations, we examine a range of attitudinal, organizational, resource, and demographic factors to systematically identify different case scenarios—i.e., combinations of characteristics—associ...

We use case study analysis to explore congregational approaches to drug treatment; qualitative findings emerged in three areas: (1) religion’s role in congregational responses to substance use, (2) relationships between program participants and the broader congregation, and (3) interactions between congre...

Faith and public health partnerships offer promise to addressing health disparities, but examples that incorporate African-Americans and Latino congregations are lacking. Here we present results from developing a multi-ethnic, multi-denominational faith and public health partnership to address health disparities through community-based participatory research (CBPR), focusing on several key issues: (1) the multi-layered governance structure and activities to establish the partnership and identify...
