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.
The panelists are members of the All In Health and Housing Affinity Group, which has engaged in in-person convenings and peer-to-peer site visits over the last year. Sharing knowledge with one another deepened participants’ understanding of various approaches to external partnerships, linked data systems, use cases, and community engagement techniques to further their data sharing.
