Upcoming Conversations with GIA webinars

Monday, August 14, 2017 2:00 - 3:00 PM EDT. Conversations with GIA: Meeting the Health Needs of Rural Elderly: Making Use of Interactive Data Resources to Improve Health
Rural America is receiving renewed attention due to the great health disparities found therein, but often those who fund programs and create policy do not know where or how to access the wealth of data already available. The NORC Walsh Center for Rural Health Analysis is a leader in documenting and highlighting rural disparities in health status and access to treatment services. Center staff will introduce participants to important data resources, highlighting key rural aging data. The presentation will include a demonstration of the interactive Exploring Rural and Urban Mortality Differences tool, which includes mortality data for the ten leading causes of death by rurality and age group, for each of the ten Department of Health and Human Services regions, as well as the Appalachian and Delta regions. The webinar will link participants to useful data and implementation resources, and demonstrate how these resources can be used within their regions and localities to demonstrate need and target interventions.

Presenter: Michael Meit, MA, MPH, Senior Public Health Systems Researcher and Co-Director of the NORC Walsh Center for Rural Health Analysis at the University of Chicago Moderator: John Feather Ph.D., CEO, Grantmakers In Aging. Sponsored by The John A. Hartford Foundation. No CEUs are available for this webinar. Register: https://register.gotowebinar.com/register/1421615042789153537
