NNIP partners all share an understanding of how neighborhoods create opportunities and challenges for residents. The effects of housing and neighborhood conditions on health outcomes are illustrations of why traditionally siloed issue areas must be examined together and why cross-sector work is essential to the improvement of low-income neighborhoods.  

This presentation was part of the “Connecting Health, Neighborhoods, and Housing” session at the NNIP October 2015 partners meeting.  Meg Merrick illustrates how data helped communicate the social determinants of health to diverse audiences in the Portland area.
