Evaluation

Allina Health contracted with Wilder Research to evaluate Neighborhood Health Connection's impact on program participants and grantees. Participants and grantees were asked to complete a survey after the end of their activity or, if the activity was ongoing, at the end of the grant cycle. Each year of the program, survey respondents consistently reported positive changes in social connections and healthy behaviors (healthy eating and physical activity). These positive changes were more likely to occur among respondents who participated six times or more in an activity.
