Victoria Lowerson Bredow is co-author with Martha S. Feldman of "Building a Health Community" the first place winner in the 2012 Best Teaching Case competition. This case presents recurrent points of tension around resident representation in a community planning process and highlights important junctures where barriers to resident inclusion are confronted. As funding agencies increasingly focus on community-based projects, they often have clear ideas of how these processes should unfold.
