The Center for Research, Health, and Social Justice is working on a project called Community Asset Mapping. The project is being conducted in 31 counties across Arkansas using focus groups. The goal of the project is to help us better understand what the residents of those 31 counties feel are the resources and assets in their communities. We are currently recruiting participants in St. Francis County. *We need 10 participants for each focus group. *Community members can call the number on the flyer; our Community Health Worker will let them know the next steps (they will have to do a phone screener). *The focus group session(s) will last for 1 ½ - 2 hours. *The focus group will be held via Zoom. The participant(s) must have a computer, tablet, or smartphone to participate. *The participants will receive a gift card after completing the focus group. *The focus group is non-invasive, and we will honor confidentiality Thank you in advance For additional information please contact Ms. Sydney Baker at 501-526-6056 | stbaker@uams.edu
