Webinar Series: Intentionally Integrating Equity Into SDOH Interventions (Part 3)

August 20, 2020

1:00 pm EST


In part three of the webinar series Intentionally Integrating Equity Into SDOH Interventions, three health equity champions discuss the benefits of data democratization, which simply put, is putting data in the hands of the people when making decisions about the living conditions that impact their health.  Data democratization helps dismantle power structures by enabling under-resourced communities, particularly Black, Indigenous, and Latinx communities, understand both the opportunities and gaps in essential health resources in their local area. Panelists highlight key components of data democratization, discuss best practices and lessons learned, and share examples of how they’ve implemented this approach in their communities. Topics include:

  1. Data democratization as an essential anti-racism tactic in SDOH interventions
  2. Community-owned data leading to shifts of power and changes in racial inequity
  3. Key steps toward implementing data democratization in your work
