Culture of Data Committee
The Culture of Data (CoD) planning committee helps to organize the Culture of Data virtual conference, which takes place during National Public Health Week. The CoD conference brings together community groups, academia, state/local government, healthcare entities and nonprofit organizations that share a goal of achieving health equity. The Culture of Data conference is designed to strengthen the use of data to support the CPHA vision of creating the healthiest Colorado for everyone by:
Sharing innovative practices that promote partnership and collaboration between community members and public health professionals to make data more accessible, meaningful, and actionable.
Exploring examples of data sharing with and by communities and how communities can leverage data to advance health equity and health outcomes.
Highlighting data sources and methodologies to identify and measure community assets and health equity.
What does an average committee meeting look like?
We use the committee meetings to brainstorm and make decisions about conference preparations. We meet once a month from August-December, and twice a month from January-April. We also host an abstract review meeting in January. We don't expect for committee members to attend every meeting - if you see the agenda and want to weigh in on a particular topic, we welcome you to come!

Breaking down silos: Public health data and community action
Data can be a powerful advocacy tool for communities. Community engagement in data collection, analysis, and dissemination enhances buy-in, commitment, sustainability and equity to the work at hand.
