Data Murals: Using Data to Engage the Community
By Electric Pulp
ICH works with The Somerville Community Health Agenda (SCHA) to evaluate a variety of programs that aim to improve the health of Somerville residents. One such project is Collaborate for Healthy Weight, a HRSA and NICHQ joint initiative. As evaluators for this project, ICH assisted with data collection and analysis to identify economic, community, and cultural factors that impact health. From this data, Collaborate for Healthy Weight painted a data mural to share findings with the community and engage them in the health improvement effort.
