Data about Health Disparities
Where people are born, grow up, live, work and age greatly impact a person’s health. Data points show a correlation to more health disparities when looking at race and ethnicity, income, geography and age. Consider using data points to illustrate how your work helps community members access resources to eliminate these inequities.
