What Works for Health? Using County Health Rankings and Roadmaps in Grant Writing
This session will provide an overview of What Works for Health, a resource from County Health Rankings and Roadmaps (CHRR), a program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation in collaboration with the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute. What Works for Health rates the evidence of a broad range of strategies (i.e., policies, programs, systems & environmental changes) that can affect health through changes to: health behaviors; clinical care; social and environmental factors; and the physical environment. Our Guest speaker from the National Network of Public Health Institutes, Toni Lewis will discuss how those preparing funding applications can use What Works for Health when writing their evidence of need. NNLM MAR Health Professions Coordinator, Erin Seger will also provide examples of past funded NNLM projects that align with strategies Toni highlights. The audience will learn a practical way to use www.countyhealthrankings.org as it relates to applying for NNLM funding or other funding opportunities.
