Boston Health: Community Health Assessment

The Neighborhood

Begin by walking about the neighborhood / community you're focusing on; what do you observe? 

  • What is the physical appearance, the noise level and density of the neighborhood?
  • How might a community member experience themselves in the context of this neighborhood? For example, might they feel a sense of belonging or a sense of being an outsider?
  • What is your experience of walking around this neighborhood?

Support Your Observations

In addition to actually walking through the neighborhood/community, these are a few online tools that can enhance your experience and understand the area, and the neighborhoods that you are familiar with in your own life.
