Did you know that there is a guide that can help you get the most out of the Rankings and a wealth of underlying data, widen your focus beyond the Rankings’ specific measures with links to additional county-level data, visualize where the assets and weaknesses are in your community, and learn about how other communities are using the Rankings? This brief, 20 minute webinar will focus on the Using the Rankings Data guide which can help you find and understand the data on our site–and beyond. There will be time for Q&A.

In 2015, the Washington State Department of Health successfully added health equity review requirements to its analysis of proposed legislation: (1) describe any positive or negative impact the bill may have on tribal health concerns and (2) describe any positive or negative impact the bill may have on health equity or health disparities. This webinar will discuss how the department used policy and administrative levers to make this change.
Presenters will: 1) Describe components of a “health equity lens” used to analyze proposed state legislation; 2) Articulate opportunities and challenges to applying a “health equity lens”; and 3) Share examples of training and resource materials.
For registration and more information, visit https://nnlm.gov/bhic/8t5k.
This webinar series was created by the Federal Interagency Health Equity Team (FIHET). Text for this post was adapted from National Partnership for Action (NPA) to End Health Disparities.
