Name of Project:
Supporting Pregnant and Parenting Teens: Engaging the Community through the World Café Method

Category(s) of Research:
Research that uses World Café in some way
If you have access to medical publications that have used the World Cafe method, we would appreciate those citations. I have only found a very limited number in medical databases.
