Using Healthy People 2020 to Promote Health in All Policies and Achieve Health Equity--Fee: $275
Sunday, November 1, 2015: 2:30 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.
Statement of Purpose and Institute Overview:
Healthy People has served as the model for disease prevention and health promotion plans for almost all states and territories across the U.S. and more than a dozen other countries. The purpose of this course is to demonstrate the various ways public health practitioners, clinicians, researchers, and policymakers can apply Healthy People 2020 data, evidence-based resources, infographics, and community stories to address health disparities and inequities within the populations with whom they work.
This Learning Institute will use interactive exercises and case-studies to increase participants’ skills in effectively using Healthy People 2020 data and tools, including the newly launched health disparities tool and state level data display tool. Here’s a sample case study: you are a public health professional trying to determine the extent of health disparities in areas of health determined to be of high priority at the national level. Using DATA2020, you can review and report on health disparities for Healthy People objectives which have population-level data. You can find resources to communicate these health disparities to an audience with various levels of data expertise -- statisticians, policymakers and program planners. After you’ve identified and reported these disparities you may review how this data varies across states, when data at the sub-national level are available. Once you’ve reviewed and reported on the data, you can find resources on healthypeople.gov to address these disparities, including evidence-based resources, infographics and stories from other states, communities or organizations working on this issue.
Healthy People 2020 interactive tools, including DATA2020, help our stakeholders to: 1)Review and track health disparities, 2) Translate findings on health disparities to an audience with varying levels of data expertise, and 3) Identify tools and resources to promote the health in all policies approach. Presenters will demonstrate how Healthy People 2020 tracks health disparities and reports on health inequities. Presenters will also explain how stakeholders can use the data and tools to create programs and interventions that support a health in all policies approach.
There will be formal and informal sharing of content, skill building and demonstrations, and sufficient time to address participant questions. Participants are encouraged to bring a laptop computer to most effectively participate in these demonstrations.
Session Objectives: Describe how to use Healthy People 2020 data to track health disparities.
Describe Healthy People 2020 data resources that help communicate health disparities to an audience with varying levels of data expertise.
Identify tools and resources on healthypeople.gov that may help address health disparities or inequities.
