How can you find by-county health statistics and other other key health resources? That will be the focus of a July 13 webinar, hosted by the Foundation for a Healthy Kentucky.
The free webinar, which starts at 3 p.m. EST next Wednesday, will teach listeners how to navigate the Kentucky Health Facts website and point listeners to other resources like the Kentucky Cancer Registry.
It will be hosted by Sarah Walsh, the senior program officer at the foundation’s Local Data for Local Action Initiative. The goal of the intiative is to provide access to key state and local health data to help decision making at the local level. “At the foundation, we take a lot of inspiration from the words of Arthur Ashe, ‘Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can’,” Walsh said. “I love that the data on our Kentucky Health Facts website can help local health advocates understand where they are starting from, so they can really do something to make their community a healthier place to live.”
Under the moniker “Health for a Change: Ignite — Unite — Act,” this is the first in a series of webinars hosted by the foundation. On July 27, Walsh will discuss how to plan a community health needs assessment. For more information about future webinars, click here.
