Join Unite Us for our Building Healthier Communities Together Town Hall. Hear from state and community health experts on the necessary inputs and measurements to truly achieve and sustain community health and health equity.
Despite an increasing interest in community health and available data to better understand the drivers of health across communities, there remain many questions on how we build and measure the inputs that lead to successful health outcomes. On April 22nd, Unite Us, our partners, and experts in community and state health will take a deep dive into several discussions including our evidence-based, data-driven Community Action Framework focused on creating healthier communities.
