How does your community stack up in terms of quality of life? At the first Center on the Family Brown Bag Talk this semester, Ivette Rodriguez Stern (COF) will be discuss her work on measurements of quality of life and well-being in O‘ahu in her presentation “Community Profiles: Using Social Indicator Data to Inform Program Development.”

  • Date: Friday, January 25, 2019
  • Time: 12 noon
  • Location: Miller Hall 2

Ivette’s talk will address the development of a Community Profile Series that presents measures of quality of life and well-being for 11 selected communities on O‘ahu, aimed at informing a leading non-profit organization in their strategic planning and program development. Having an informed understanding of community-level issues helps in the planning, implementation, and evaluation of programs and services aimed at supporting the quality of life of people and overall community well-being.

Ivette is a junior specialist and the director of the Hawai‘i KIDS COUNT project. A social worker by training, she now specializes in macro-level practice related to child and family well-being. Her work integrates research and Extension activities and focuses on assessing and evaluating the conditions of children and families in Hawai‘i.
