OHD Webinar: It Takes A Village

Webinar: It Takes A Village

How data, community, and culture combine to address birth outcomes disparities

Thursday, January 31, 2019

11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. MST

This webinar will review the work of the Utah Office of Health Disparities (OHD) on unveiling and addressing birth outcomes disparities among specific groups.

Using Pacific Islanders as an example, presenters will discuss the process behind identifying the health disparities and working with partners to create innovative and culturally sound solutions. They will also highlight the It Takes a Village: Giving Our Babies the Best Chance (ITAV) program, which raises awareness about birth outcomes disparities in the context of Pacific Islander cultural beliefs and practices.

The following learning objectives will be addressed:

  • Learn to uncover health disparities through disaggregation of data.
  • Identify ways to work with communities to move data to action by using culture as a pathway to address health issues. 
  • Become familiar with the It Takes a Village curriculum and program outcomes.
