A qualitative evaluation aimed at understanding why some families in a low-income urban neighborhood are able to successfully participate in a peer-education lead poisoning prevention project while other families are not successful. Barriers and motivators to participation and follow through were identified through focus groups. Primary collaborators are the Phillips Neighborhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Project, the Community-University Health Care Clinic, and the University of Minnesota. The presenter will describe the project results, partnerships formed, lessons learned, and translation of findings into clinical practice to reduce health disparity.

Learning Objectives: 1) to describe methods for collaboration 2) to identify strategies for measuring community health improvement
