The second webinar in the Planners4Health Curriculum series focuses on the importance of measurement in building healthy communities. Participants will learn about different data sources traditionally used in the public health and planning fields while discussing the challenges of working with data and the opportunities it can afford. An important component of this session is identifying emerging metrics for healthy communities and the way that these metrics incorporate equity.
Participants will also explore broader notions of evidence, including experiential and contextual evidence, and cross-sector approaches. The Indianapolis Plan4Health coalition will share successes, challenges, and lessons learned from their work on the ground.
