A Community Approach to Address Health Disparities: THRIVE (Toolkit for Health & Resilience In Vulnerable Environments) - Final Report

Under contract with the U.S. Office of Minority Health (OMH), Prevention Institute developed a community resilience assessment toolkit, adobe acrobat file T*H*R*I*V*E, to help communities bolster factors that will improve health outcomes and reduce disparities experienced by racial and ethnic minorities. T*H*R*I*V*E provides a framework for community members, coalitions, public health practitioners, and local decision-makers to identify factors associated with poor health outcomes in communities of color, engage relevant stakeholders, and take action to remedy the disparities.

The tool is grounded in research and was developed with input from a national expert panel. It has demonstrated utility in urban, rural, and suburban settings. Within months of piloting there was already evidence of community change and some initial results of that change were the initiation of farmers’ markets and youth programs, among other outcomes. Now that the toolkit has been developed and demonstrated utility, the next steps are to disseminate it and to provide the necessary training and technical assistance. This report provides an overview of the project, including conceptual background information, a review of existing resilience efforts, research that informed the tool, a description of the project’s methodology, a description of the pilot events and outcomes, and recommendations for next steps.
