Free Webinar: City Health Dashboard: Using Data for COVID-19 Response and Recovery
Recorded On: 04/08/2021
Most US cities lack actionable data specific to their jurisdictions on population health status, health determinants, and equity. To address this gap, a team at NYU Grossman School of Medicine, in collaboration with NYU Wagner School of Public Service, the National Resource Network, the International City/County Management Association, and the National League of Cities, developed the City Health Dashboard for all 750+ U.S. cities with populations of 50,000 or higher. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Dashboard has added new measures of COVID risk and monthly unemployment to help cities think about their response and recovery. Learn about the Dashboard's data and how local stakeholders have used this free online resource to more fully understand local health needs and pressing challenges, better target resources to areas with the largest health inequities, and think about long term resilience.
