Samantha Polansky

St. Luke’s University Health Network, Community Health Department
Samantha worked on data collection, analysis, and writing for the Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) reports for each of St. Luke's hospital campuses. She integrated primary data from focus group interviews and community surveys, and conducted secondary data analyses in order to create seven cohesive reports outlining the health needs faced by the communities each hospital serves. Samantha even developed a CHNA implementation guide, designed to streamline the assessment process in the next cycle.
