Culture of Data: Engaging Communities to Drive Health Equity
Presented by: Colorado Public Health Association (CPHA) on June 23, 2017
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. Initiated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Office of Minority Health (OMH) in 2002, Regional Minority Health Consultant Lorenzo Olivas led the collaboration for 11 years.
