The Designing Healthy Communities VIP is a partnership between the Boise State Anthropology Department and the St. Luke’s Applied Research Division. Our team of Boise State students and St. Luke’s researchers are conducting qualitative user experience research in Nampa, Idaho. Phase one of our project consists of investigating the social determinants of health affecting patient access to healthcare through surveys and interviews. Phase two of our project is comprised of observing the patient clinical experience in St. Luke’s Nampa community clinics. Our mission is to collect data on what challenges our fellow community members in Nampa experience while using the St. Luke’s services available to them. St. Luke’s hopes to incorporate this knowledge into their systems, policies, and community clinics to better serve the Nampa population.
