Hearing a Need
Rural public health professionals across the Northwest voiced a need for better access to data that is easy to review and helps identify health inequities issues within the communities they serve. Data can provide insight for decision making and priority-setting and strengthens requests for funding to support communities.
This free training series, known as Addressing and Communicating About Rural Health Disparities with Data, is designed to increase understanding of population health concepts and help public health professionals develop skills and confidence in effectively communicating with data, including sharing data visually in charts and graphs.
The training is part of a five-year, collaborative project with public health professionals in the Pacific Northwest so they can more effectively identify, address, and communicate about health disparities in the rural communities they serve.
It is designed with and for public health professionals serving rural communities in the Pacific Northwest (Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington state). Module content primarily focuses on rural health disparities. The information and approaches highlighted in the modules are also transferable to a variety of public health contexts.
