For the first time ever, public health officials, community leaders, and others working to improve health can access census tract level data to measure and compare differences in life expectancy in nearly every neighborhood across the country. With this kind of information, community leaders can examine the factors that may be influencing these health differences such as access to health care, safe and affordable housing, educational opportunities, and other factors that impact the health of community members and target solutions more effectively. Hosted by Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, USALEEP, City Health Dashboard, and Urban Institute, this webinar will explore how these local life expectancy data can help spark change to improve health and well-being for all.
