The Colorado Public Health Association invites you to join us for our annual Culture of Data Conference Friday, May 3, 2019.
This year’s event will take place at the University of Colorado South Denver, located at 10035 S Peoria St, in Parker, CO.
The Culture of Data (COD) conference brings together community members, academia, state/local government and nonprofit organizations that share a goal of achieving health equity.
The 2019 theme is Data Connections Between Behavioral Health and Public Health: Creating a Culture of Equity. This year the Culture of Data is seeking submissions related to the data collection, analysis, dissemination, utilization and integration of behavioral health data to achieve health equity. Abstracts should focus on the areas of , promotion, prevention, treatment and recovery in substance use and mental health, paying close attention to the social determinants of health.
The conference offers a variety of breakouts, workshops and skill-building sessions for every data user level to apply data towards achieving health equity in diverse communities.
The objectives of the Culture of Data conference are:
-To identify and utilize the collection of health data on racial and ethnic populations that will impact health policy and the delivery of health services.
-To modify existing data collection and dissemination processes to prioritize telling the story of those communities experiencing health inequities.
-To develop and cultivate relationships and partnerships between communities and researchers seeking to achieve health equity.
The conference aims to:
-Provide a forum for attendees to explore currently available health/demographic data to drive community-based decision-making
-Connect community-based organizations with health data partners
-Collaborate on best practices for data use and analytics to understand health equity
-Build the skills and knowledge for each data user level to understand health inequities and inform future work and collaboration
