Abstract: "This dissertation examines the factors that contributed to successful collective action in establishing and operating neighborhood health centers in low resource urban areas. Persons involved with the health centers over a twenty year period were identified and focused in depth interviews conducted. Historic documents, including correspondence, reports, minutes and newspaper articles were reviewed. Explanation of collective action in the low resource neighborhoods required the integration resource mobilization theory with expansions of Olson's logic of collective action."
