Tools to Integrate Equity into Community Health Needs Assessments

A banner with all four partner logos.
This webinar will expand upon the conversation by highlighting two analytical resources for conducting Community Health Needs Assessments with a health equity lens: the America’s Health Rankings’ ‘Health Disparity Tool’ and NNPHI’s ‘Community Commons.’ America’s Health Rankings ‘Health Disparity Tool’ can be used to identify priorities and target populations experiencing disparate healthoutcomes.  The ‘Community Commons’ tool is an interactive mapping, networking, and learning tool which provides free access to geographic information systems (GIS) data for topic areas across the domains of the Social Determinants of Health such as the built environment, food systems, and local economy.
