Throughout my many years of outreach experience, I have realized that incentives are not always an option. Identifying community stakeholders can fill in the gap of having limited or no resources. I have observed community stakeholder’s “power” of persuasion over the community. In other words, the community stakeholder’s voice is respected and the community trusts this individual will have their best interest in mind and if this individual supports the research, then formal formative research activities can move forward.
