Jackson presents at AEA Conference
Trinidad Jackson, M.S., M.P.H., senior research associate, is the lead evaluator for an initiative aimed at reducing violence in Louisville. He attended the AEA conference in Atlanta, Georgia in fall 2016, to present on design and implementation aspects of Pivot to Peace, a hospital-based program that recruits individuals who go to the hospital as a result of gunshot or stab wound injury. These individuals are encouraged to participate in a program that connects them to conflict resolution training and social services that help ground them in a foundation of peace and progress.
University Hospital and the Peace Education Program are key partners that facilitate program activities. The Model for Collaborative Evaluation is used to guide evaluation activities that support the utilization of stakeholder expertise and participation.
This evaluation initiative is a project of the Commonwealth Institute of Kentucky, an entity of the School of Public Health and Information Sciences. Ryan Combs, Ph.D., Monica Wendel, Dr.P.H., M.A., Deborah Barnes-Byers, Eileen Blanton, Alice Bridges, Kevin Fields, Janene Shakir, Anna Smith, Dr. Eddie Woods also are members of the Pivot to Peace evaluation team.
