Disparities in chronic disease, injury, and premature death contribute to worse health outcomes, decreased productivity, and increased direct and indirect healthcare costs for minority racial/ethnic populations and people with low socioeconomic status.
Inequities in housing, transportation, environmental issues, and access to healthcare, mental health, healthy food and active spaces contribute to these disparities.
But we can’t address these inequities if we don’t have local data to show the way.
Data like the new Salud America! Health Equity Report Card can identify health inequity issues in your county, compared to the state and nation, and help you build a case toward solutions.
Let’s use #SaludTues on September 24, 2019, to tweet about how you can use data to make the case to address inequities in your county.
- WHAT: #SaludTues Tweetchat: “How to Use Data to Promote Health Equity”
- TIME/DATE: 1-2 p.m. ET Tuesday, Sept. 24, 2019
- WHERE: On Twitter with hashtag #SaludTues
- HOST: @SaludAmerica
- CO-HOSTS: City Health (@city_health); Maria Herndandez, PhD (@drmghernandez); Public Health Maps (@PublicHealthMap); and CI: Now (@CINow).
We’ll open the floor to science, your experiences and stories, and best practices as we explore:
- Our new “Health Equity Report Card” to be released Sept. 24, 2019;
- How you can use data to make the case to address inequities in your county; and
- Actions you can take to drive solutions.
Use #SaludTues to follow the conversation and share the latest in data and health equity.
