Be among the first to explore the Congressional District Health Dashboard.
Coming on January 25, 2023, the new Congressional District Health Dashboard will give policymakers, advocates, journalists and others a one-stop resource of unbiased, nonpartisan data at the congressional-district level to support policies that allow everyone the opportunity for good health and wellbeing.
Developed by the Department of Population Health at NYU Grossman School of Medicine, in partnership with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the Congressional District Health Dashboard will equip users with first-of-its-kind data on health and conditions that affect health in every congressional district across the country.
During this webinar, you will:
- Explore first-of-its-kind congressional district-level data on health, education, poverty, and more
- Learn how policymakers can better prioritize health after viewing customized health snapshots and interactive maps, tables, and charts and comparing their district’s health outcomes with those of other districts
- Hear how advocates can show lawmakers how their district compares to others on key measures of health and wellbeing such as rent burden, broadband access, mental distress, and more
- Dig into key findings and geographic trends on child poverty, maternal health and racial and economic disparities in health across congressional districts
