If we want to really know what challenges our community faces and how we can address those challenges with the proper solutions, we need data to drive our decision-making. Often our personal impressions can guide our decision-making and the way we focus on planning and providing for our community. That can lead us to misdiagnoses that will eventually waste time and resources that we simply cannot afford. That is why research is so key. Through focused research studies we can produce data that will show us where our community is suffering, or even where our community’s interests lie.
