The Health Resources and Services Administration’s Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) is pleased to announce a DataSpeak program on urban child health. This webinar focuses on socioemotional and environmental health and how three different programs are using data to drive community action and change for children in urban neighborhoods. Participants hear how researchers have developed datasets and dashboards from data sources that aren’t commonly combined and how they have balanced local and national data to tell stories about neighborhoods, childhood experiences and health outcomes.
