The conference aims to help community-based organizations in their efforts to better use data and other sources of knowledge to promote health equity and address health disparities. The conference will be designed to support community groups in accessing existing national, state, or local data; and analyze and use these data to end health disparities. The conference will include workshops, breakout sessions, and presentations on how to use existing data sources at the local, state, and national levels.
The conference will be most beneficial to members of community-based efforts (coalitions, grassroots organizations, etc.) and nonprofit organizations, who have used or want to use data to advance their health equity or health disparities work and would like to improve their data capacity. The conference is open to anyone who is either engaged in or interested in using data for health equity and health disparities work, and willing to learn and to share their experience with others.
