ICBR Graduate Intern Presents AmeriCorps*VISTA Evaluation Findings

Lydia Hanson – a graduate student in Public Health and Social Work at the University of Michigan – recently presented preliminary findings from her summer internship. The presentation took place on July 19, 2012 at the Center for Community and Economic Development (CCED) in Cleveland, Mississippi. Working in collaboration with the Institute for Community-Based Research and the University of Mississippi Center for Population Studies, Lydia spent the summer conducting interviews and administering a survey to help evaluate the Mississippi Delta Service Corps/AmeriCorps*Volunteers In Service to America (VISTA) program. Housed in the CCED, this VISTA program seeks to reduce poverty in the Delta region of northwest Mississippi. Following Lydia’s presentation, she facilitated a participatory discussion among VISTA members and site supervisors with the help of Molly Phillips and Sarah Gayden Harris.
