Cordova Community Survey (2002-2003)
Trainee: Andrew Lan (Pediatric Resident)
CHPT Site: Cordova Community Collaborative
Synopsis: Andrew created a community survey for an area of Rancho Cordova. The survey data was compiled for the Weed and Seed federal grant application, an initiative of the Cordova Community Collaborative (CCC). Dr. Lan researched the evaluation and survey requirements of the grant, as well as those interests of the Collaborative in order construct a quality community needs assessment survey, which he then took door-to-door to hundreds of homes. Because the Cordova Community has a large number of Russian-speaking immigrants, Dr. Lan worked with the Folsom-Cordova Unified School District's translation department to take a Russian-spekaing translator with him on his visits.
Dr. Lan's efforts combined with the efforts of the Collaborative, won CCC the Federal Weed & Seed Grant in 2003.
