Asset Mapping Project
A service learning collaboration with Community Health students from the Department of Kinesiology at ISU provided support to SCQOL coalitions and to the Leadership Team. The students worked to provide resource links for each of the SCQOLA Collaborative Groups. The key resource was a set of integrated maps that provide direct links and information on various community health resources and centers. Click here to Access Asset Maps
