Abstract

Medicaid recipients experience a greater health burden of chronic illness. Therefore, we designed a neighborhood-centric intervention to promote chronic disease self-management and empower providers to advocate for lifestyle changes. We designed a physical map designating the health-promoting resources of one neighborhood. The map illustrated opportunities for exercise, nutrition, stress relief, and group support. The design and production was accomplished through a collaborative process with community partners to identify relevant local resources. Our project garnered enthusiastic support from community members and health care providers. Our assessment also identified numerous resource gaps. Upon completion, we handed our map off to our community partners for future evaluation of health impacts. The completion of the resource map project proved the feasibility of such an endeavor and created a platform from which to gauge the effectiveness of neighborhood-centric health-promoting projects. Partnerships created with community members built a foundation for continued community-based health promotion efforts.
