DIVERSITY NETWORK COMMITTEE INVITED SYMPOSIUM:  Place-Based Approaches for Health Equity Among Members of Marginalized Groups: Weighing Reach, Adoption, Effectiveness, and Scalability

Chair:  Felipe Gonzelez Castro, PhD, MSW, Arizona State University


Micere Keels, PhD, University of Chicago

Liliane Cambraia Windsor, PhD, MSW, The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

Russell E. Glasgow, PhD, University of Colorado, School of Medicine

Place-based interventions address contextual factors that impact social determinants of health in order to promote health equity. Addressing contextual factors may reduce risk factors that exacerbate disparities and enhance promotive and protective factors to influence health and health behaviors. The purpose of this symposium is to discuss place-based interventions as a strategy to improve prevention science among members of marginalized or underrepresented groups. Three experts will present the process and outcomes of their place-based prevention programs that focus on promoting health equity among members of racial and ethnic minority groups, sexual and gender minority groups, and religious minority groups. The discussion will focus on weighing considerations related to the development and adaptation of preventive interventions for specific groups, including tensions between responsiveness and scalability/generalizability, tensions between adaptation/community ownership and fidelity, and considerations such as cultural imperialism and ethics. The discussion will be informed by the RE-AIM model (reach, effectiveness, adoption, implementation, and maintenance).

Dr. Micere Keels will present Combining MOST and CBPR to build sustainable, efficient, and effective community based interventions; Dr. Liliane Cambraia Windsor will present [title] and Dr. Russell E. Glasgow will present Implications of and Opportunities Suggested by the RE-AIM Framework for Place-Based Approaches to Increase Health Equity.
