Secondary Data Collection

Chandler Park Healthy Neighborhood Initiative collected significant secondary data in order to determine which health outcomes would be the focus of our interventions. We utilized data created by the Detroit Department of Health & Wellness Promotion, St. John Hospital and Medical Center, and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Through our analysis of this data, we determined that obesity, heart disease and type-2 diabetes were affecting a significant portion of 48213 residents. As a result our Executive Committee voted to address those health outcomes through our interventions at Chandler Park.
