How Does Where We Live Influence How Healthy We Are?

Upcoming webinar explores how place influences health

Join us on May 12 at 3pm ET to learn about how place matters for creating conditions for residents to thrive. During this webinar, we will feature guests from three communities—Jefferson County, Alabama; Blair County, Pennsylvania; and 2019 RWJF Culture of Health Prize winner Greenville, South Carolina–that have used our data, evidence, and guidance to improve health locally. Our guest presenters will share lessons they have learned about what is needed to create health and equity in their communities.

“Place is a powerful predictor of who is healthy, who is sick, and who lives longer.” -Kadie Peters, Vice President of Impact Strategy and Resource Development at United Way of Central Alabama and featured guest speaker.

“Through our work here in Greenville, we have grown in our understanding and awareness of how race and voter disenfranchisement impact what voices are heard, especially with our single district minority representation at the county and state level. We understand that giving all voices the opportunity to speak and be heard is an important tool in impacting health policy in our community.” -Addy Matney, featured guest speaker from LiveWell Greenville.

U.S. Census 2020: Engagement Opportunities for Rural Health Stakeholders

We know it’s important to get those rural counts, but what can you do?

Rural healthcare providers and stakeholders play an important role in assuring a complete count of the population in rural communities during the 2020 Census.

The NOSORH Program Analysis & Response Committee (PARC) developed a new issue brief for State Offices of Rural Health (SORH), rural healthcare providers and other rural health stakeholders on how they can help support ‘hard-to-count’ populations.

The issue brief provides an overview of the challenges to rural Census counts/enumerations and outlines engagement opportunities for rural healthcare providers and rural health stakeholders.
