2007-2009 Cohort

Suzanne is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison MPH program. She completed her Fellowship with the Department of Public Health for Madison and Dane County in the Health Promotion Program. In this program Suzanne used participatory strategies to address health disparities within communities and the relationship between the built environment and health. These techniques helped to engage with community members, stakeholders and built environment professionals to learn how people use place; assessment findings of health supports and barriers were then translated into action. Suzanne also co-coordinated a group called CHAMP (Community Health Assessment Mapping Partnership) that developed and implemented a collaborative Community Health Assessment using both geographic information systems and community-based participatory research to combine population-based data with qualitative assessments of the built environment.
