All In: Data for Community Health Statement on the George Floyd’s Death & Nationwide Protests

At All In, over 200 collaborations are working together to promote community health through data, collaboration, and community leadership. Driving this effort is the fight for racial justice and health equity – without which people cannot reach their optimal level of health and communities cannot thrive.

Over the past week, the brutal murder of George Floyd, the police violence in the face of legitimate protest, and the unjust and ongoing oppression of black, indigenous and other people of color (BIPOC) reflect centuries of systemic racism in our country. We treasure our shared community and the opportunity we have to fight together for equity, anti-racism and justice.

We are actively seeking new avenues to reflect these aims in our shared work. On the most recent episode of the All In podcast, Dr. Rhea Boyd referred to the disproportionate COVID-19 deaths of black and brown people as “the epidemic within the pandemic.”  It has inspired us during this tumultuous time in our nation and we encourage each other to listen, reflect and take action.  Black Lives Matter.


All In Webinar: Leveraging Health and Housing Linkages In Response to COVID-19

On April 28th, panelists from Cook County, Cleveland, and Los Angeles County shared their experiences leveraging current health and housing projects to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic facing communities. Panelists shared lessons on 1) leveraging existing relationships to promote an equity-driven response, 2) promoting the value of data sharing and community health when developing new relationships, and 3) technical and relationship-based considerations to sharing data on vulnerable communities.

Tackling the Opioid Epidemic: Leveraging Linked Datasets for Insights and Informed Action

Communities across the country share a common sense of urgency to take action against rapidly escalating rates of preventable deaths associated with opioid use. While an increase in clinical opioid prescriptions and the introduction of synthetic opioids into the drug supply partially explain the national uptick in overdose and addiction rates, knowledge gaps surrounding more localized factors related to opioid use, addiction, overdose, and treatment makes developing responsive and evidence-based interventions a challenge for states and communities.

Bias in Big Data: Implications for Multi-Sector Data Sharing

Bias in data is everywhere, from the moment we pose a question to be answered to the point when we implement solutions. The Northwestern Institute for Sexual and Gender Minority Health and Wellbeing hosted a half-day workshop on this topic. The sessions focused on defining what and how bias in big data emerges in our work and the real-world implications. The lessons learned through practitioners’ work with sexual and gender minority communities are valuable and necessary as we build towards equitable results in our multi-sector data sharing initiatives.

Mapping Public Resources to Advance Health Equity

Spatial analysis or mapping can reveal geographic insights about health-related public investments that remain hidden when applying a typical non-spatial perspective.

Presenters discussed how they have used spatial analysis to identify opportunities to improve community health and reduce inequities around funding and resource allocation across cities.
