Applying a health equity frame during every phase of the data process can help communities understand and address the root causes of persistent health disparities.
Marijata Daniel-Echols, PhD, Director of the Center for Health Equity Practice at the Michigan Public Health Institute (MPHI), and James Bell, MSW, Director of Policy & Engagement at MPHI, joined the podcast to explain the ways in which the development of research questions, data collection and analysis methods, and reporting strategies can either promote or thwart health equity. They also shared strategies and examples of how communities can capture and lift up diverse perspectives through a combination of data and storytelling.
