Community Assessment of Military Transitions

NEW! Community Assessment of Military Transitions


We have completed phase 1 of our study, Community Assessment of Military Transitions, which examines service member and military family experiences during the post-deployment transition. In phase 1 we identified needs and gaps in the community, and in phase 2 we will have new conversations about resources available in Duluth/Superior to support military family transitions. 
The purpose of the study is to improve community support of military transitions in the Duluth area. This study is being conducted by Dr. Sarah Beehler at the University of Minnesota, Medical School, Duluth campus.

Participation is open to Duluth/Superior community members. Please fill out the Google screening form (linked here) to be considered for this study.

*We understand that COVID-19 has impacted our community in many ways, including our ability to have group discussions in person! With that in mind, we plan on conducting our study in a virtual setting, in order to be flexible in scheduling and mindful of our participants’ health and safety.
  • We’ll be keeping the sessions fairly short (30-60 minutes) and will be offering flexible scheduling for participants to make it as convenient as possible to be a part of our study.
  • Participants will be paid $25 (Visa gift card) for their time.
If you have questions about the study or are interested in participating, you may contact, B R. Balmer, Research Professional (see contact information below). For more information on this study’s leader, Dr. Sarah Beehler, please visit her staff page at the University of Minnesota here
