Cyber-Seminar Will Explore Measuring the Health of a Community
The April 10 Research to Reality (R2R) cyber-seminar will explore tools and resources, such as the County Health Rankings, that can be used to measure the health of a community. Participants will examine ways to measure a community’s health that can stimulate multi-stakeholder engagement and serve as a focus for efforts to improve community health and health equity.
Dr. Kurt Stange of Case Western Reserve University will highlight models used to measure the health of a community and discuss how knowledge generated and followed over time can empower multi-stakeholder groups to work together to improve health, its determinants, and health equity.
Terry Allan of the Cuyahoga County Board of Health and Dr. Paul Jarris of the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials will share their experiences working across sectors to measure community health at the local and national levels. Participants will be invited to share their experiences and lessons learned and to discuss how other communities can use this approach to improve health and equity.
