The Congressional District Health Dashboard (the Dashboard) is a new, free website that gives policymakers and advocates a one-stop resource of unbiased, nonpartisan data at the congressional-district level to inform the development of policies that give everyone the opportunity for good health and wellbeing. Developed by NYU Grossman School of Medicine, in partnership with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the Dashboard equips users with first-of-its-kind data on health and the conditions that affect health drawn from federal sources and other datasets, including the U.S. Census Bureau, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Environmental Protection Agency, for every congressional district across the country.
Join this APDU webinar with the Dashboard team on March 21st at 3:00pm ET where they will introduce participants to the tool, share how local governments, non-profits, academia, and businesses can prioritize health policy topics by viewing customized health snapshots and interactive maps, and explore how they worked with public datasets to create this new platform.
