Anyone involved in health advocacy knows how important it is to turn data into compelling messages that will help move the policy needle in the direction of supporting improved health for underserved and marginalized communities. However, with so much data out there where does one start? The Institute of Medicine Roundtable on Population Health is here to help. They’ll be at The California Endowment’s Oakland Conference Center on July 30, 2015 and the workshop will commence at 8:15 am.
They’ll feature presentations, interactive demonstrations, and a substantive discussion of population health metrics. The workshop objectives are to focus on health beyond health care with an emphasis on the purposes, overlaps and gaps in population metrics, the challenges of disparities and achieving equity, and identifying what metrics multi-sector stakeholders need to take action to transform health
Not in Oakland? Not to worry! There will be a live webcast.
