DataSpeak Webinar Series

Data-driven Change at the Community Level:Emerging Research on Urban Child Health

Please join us on Monday, July 24, 20171:00 pm – 2:00 pm ET


The Health Resources and Services Administration’s Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) is pleased to announce an upcoming DataSpeak program on urban child health. This webinar will focus 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 will 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.

Presentations will include:

  • Renee D. Boynton-Jarrett, MD, ScD, associate professor of pediatrics at the Boston University School of Medicine and founding director of the Vital Village Community Engagement Network, will showcase the development and community-focused uses of the Vital Village data dashboard.
  • Claudia J. Coulton, PhD, Distinguished University Professor at Case Western Reserve University and founder and Co-Director of the Center on Urban Poverty and Community Development, will present on how the Child Longitudinal Data System was developed and how it has been used to explore the links between housing quality, the foreclosure crisis, and elevated blood lead levels.
  • Lisa M. Sontag-Padilla, PhD, behavioral and social scientist at the RAND Corporation, will discuss the development of a databook on child socio-emotional health using data from the CANDLE (Conditions Affecting Neurocognitive Development and Learning in Early childhood) study and other data sets on families in Memphis and Shelby counties.
