Using a Health Equity Lens with Community Health Data: Principles to Practice 
Ellen Sublett, Sara Yousuf, Claire Peters; Children's Hospital Colorado

Data can be a powerful tool and critical to making decisions in all aspects of life. Given this inherent power, there are several potential negative consequences to how data are used that reinforce systemic inequities rather than reducing them. This presentation will focused on equitable approaches to community health data, focusing in two areas: 1) equity principles in collection, analysis, and communication of community health data, and 2)  how Children’s is testing these principles with their community health needs assessment (CHNA) work in the spring of 2021, including what is going well and opportunities for continued learning in how to put data equity practices to work. Part one of the presentation will provide attendees with specific steps, examples, scenarios of equitable approaches with connections to health equity concepts such as bias, power and privilege and intersectionality, as well as resources to continue learning in data equity. Part two of the presentation will provide attendees with a real-life example of how these principles are working in practice at Children’s as they conduct their 2021 CHNAs, giving attendees ideas for ways to apply these practices to their work.
