Priority / Social Determinants of Health/Health Equity

Location / Denver, CO Statewide area of focus

Grant Summary:  The Colorado Office of Health Equity utilizes a multi-disciplinary approach focused on long-term change at state and local levels to redistribute resources that shape health such as education, transportation and housing.  Translating data to action is an important mechanism to begin conversations with partners in sectors outside of health.  This project will harness the power of data by creating an equity assessment to:  1) frame accurate narratives around factors that create health; 2) ensure solutions are data-driven; and 3) ensure data represent a variety of sectors such as education, law enforcement, and housing.
