Project's goal is to train community-based health workers (CHW) on conducting home inspections (virtual and/or in-person) in order to counsel families living in disadvantaged communities on how to remedy household hazardous conditions. The student would assist faculty in researching and developing appropriate educational materials on topics in childhood safety, piloting an Internet-based training module designed for CHW training, and (potentially) conducting home inspections and family counseling on how to improve the physical environment. A student with non-English speaking skills (e.g. Spanish, Portuguese) and a knowledge of manipulation of databases and statistical packages would be helpful.
