A panel of experts from Washington State, Arizona and Utah will explore how state agencies, CBOs, and community members in these states are partnering to advance health equity through data
A panel of experts from Washington State, Arizona and Utah will explore how state agencies, CBOs, and community members in these states are partnering to advance health equity through data sharing and policy reform activities. Participants will learn about opportunities to meaningfully partner with community members to promote health equity at the state and local levels.
Communities across the U.S. face an array of complex health equity challenges, including meeting the health care needs of people experiencing homelessness, reducing poverty, and improving care for rural populations. Addressing these issues requires robust collaboration and cross-sector data sharing to better understand how community members access health care. While states and community-based organizations (CBOs) have developed data sharing and policy initiatives across sectors, community members are often not included in these efforts. As part of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation-funded Learning and Action in Policy and Partnerships initiative, Data Across Sectors for Health and the Center for Health Care Strategies (CHCS) are working with states, CBOs, and community members to integrate community voice in data sharing and policy reform activities to better address health equity challenges.
Speaker: Liz Buck, MPA, Senior Program Officer, CHCS
L. Buck will welcome participants and introduce the panelists.
II. Panel Discussion
Panelists: Tammy Gallegos, Director, San Juan County Aging Services, Utah; Tyler Rosensteel, MBA, Senior Director, Solari Inc., Arizona; and Lindsay Morgan Tracy, Innovator-in-Chief, Washington State Department of Social and Health Services; Moderator: Liz Buck
Panelists will discuss their community and state activities to involve people with lived expertise in data and policy efforts related to supporting individuals experiencing homelessness, reducing poverty, and using culturally competent approaches to work with seniors in rural populations, including Native American tribes. Panelists will discuss the role of community members and CBOs in defining the needs and priorities of the communities being served, the role of state government in embedding community perspectives into policymaking, and sustainability of these partnerships.
III. Moderated Audience Q&A
L. Buck will facilitate an audience Q&A session.
