Citizen Science for Healthy Equity

In the Our Voice approach, Citizen Scientists gather and analyze community data, then share their findings with decision makers to advocate for changes in the local environment, with the ultimate goal of advancing health equity.

The Our Voice Approach

Beginning with neighborhood walks using the Discovery Tool, Citizen Scientists engage in a four-step process to build healthier communities: Discover, Discuss, Activate, Change
