May 2019

The Urban Institute partnered with the National Association of City and County Health Officials (NACCHO) to host a webinar targeted at public health agency staff seeking to discuss the connections between health and housing and the data sources available at the neighbrhood level to inform community health planning. The webinar featured Barbara Laymon from NACCHO, Chelsea Hawkins and Denver Jameson from Durham County, North Carolina Department of Public Health, John Killeen of Data Works NC, and Leah Hendey from NNIPHQ/Urban Institute. 

John's presentation focused on local data sources that can be used to assess the social determinants of health and referenced their health.dataworks-nc.org website that combines indicators of health and social determinants of health and allows users to explore data by neighborhood. Leah's focused on guidance documents on using nationally-available sources of small area data as well as articulating sources of data on housing and neighborhood context.
