Monday, December 12Register
This webinar will describe barriers and proposed solutions for using data in addressing health inequities in rural populations. The Northwest Center for Public Health Practice has developed a dashboard to make relevant data readily available, supported by training modules focusing on using data to achieve rural health equity. This training will introduce the modules and opportunities for further learning and provide examples for how data can be used to understand rural health inequities and how to address them.

This Webinar will focus on the needs and benefits of Decolonizing Evaluation practices within public health organizations and introduce Indigenous Data Sovereignty as the right of Indigenous peoples to govern the collection, ownership, and application of data about their communities, peoples, lands, and resources. This training will highlight organizational policies and practices that can be adopted to support evaluation strategies rooted in racial equity, as well as approaches to authentically engage and collaborate with Indigenous populations to support their control over how public health data and knowledge will be generated, analyzed, documented, and disseminated.
Session 2: Best Practices in Transforming Data into Policy Actions for Health Equity and Racial Justice
Monday, October 24Register here
The Healthy Places Index (HPI) is powerful data, mapping and policy platform created by PHI’s Public Health Alliance Southern California, designed to identify opportunities to improve neighborhood health and help guide investments, programs, and policy changes to where they will have the strongest impact on life expectancy. These policies are applicable in localities and states around the country. Join PHI’s Center for Wellness and Nutrition and our Public Health Alliance Southern California to learn how to use the HPI to find policies and best practices to reduce health inequities in your community.
Session 1: A Race & Place Approach to Advancing Health Equity & Racial Justice
September 26, 2022
The Public Health Alliance of Southern California will focus on the benefits of taking a race and place approach to examining health inequities. Using both race and place to address the impact of structural racism on health outcomes is critically important and is firmly supported by the data. The webinar also covers why examining both race and place are critical for promoting health equity.
PHI’s Public Health Alliance of Southern California team has significant expertise in developing and analyzing data tools and strategies that advance health equity, racial justice, and the social drivers of health, especially those that transform data into action. The Public Health Alliance Southern California is also the developer of the Healthy Places Index (HPI), a powerful and easy-to-use data and policy platform that breaks down data on social conditions that affect health by neighborhood in California. HPI is founded on the principle that examining both race and place is essential when addressing health inequities. The HPI has served as an effective tool to advance an equitable and just COVID-19 response and recovery for all Californians. In addition, this approach could benefit many other jurisdictions in addressing health inequities and racial injustices.
Additional information and registration will be posted for the upcoming sessions as available.
