Listen to the All In Podcast

Imagine a world where doctors, public health officials, police officers, social workers, and other community stakeholders were all sharing their data in an effort to improve the health of the people they serve.

Across America, many communities are making this vision a reality—but not without struggles along the way. These local collaborations are somehow able to overcome turf wars, legal issues, technology challenges and more to ultimately end up with integrated data systems that allow them to be more efficient and effective at improving people’s health.

So what’s their secret? What have they learned that could help other communities fighting the same battles?

On the All In: Data for Community Health podcast, we will talk to local leaders who are tackling these challenges head on and going “All In” to collaborate with other sectors to systematically share data to improve community health.

Episodes from seasons 1-3 are available on SoundCloud, iTunes, Stitcher, and TuneIn.

Episode 4: Dr. Ninez Ponce Discusses Data Visibility in the Nation’s Largest State Health Survey

In this episode of the All In podcast, Host Miriam Castro is joined by the Director of the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research and the principal investigator of the California Health Interview Survey (CHIS), Dr. Ninez Ponce. As the principal investigator for CHIS, the nation’s largest state health survey, Dr. Ponce discusses her influential role of advocating and creating processes of inclusion and representation in the survey that reaches over 20,000 people each year. Dr. Ponce discusses how she devised the rationale and implementation of Asian ethnic oversamples, and the cultural and linguistic adaptation of the survey in Chinese (Cantonese and Mandarin), Korean, Vietnamese, and Tagalog. In this episode, Dr. Ponce shares anecdotes with Miriam from experiences she has had within her 20+ year career in survey-based research, and the fight for data that is representative of the reality of every population served.
