Prevention evaluation and system response data (e.g., intakes and police reports) are often considered unrelated, however, the systematic tracking of equity-related factors – such as primary language spoken or income – can help us better understand the impact of violence on marginalized communities and inform the development of culturally relevant prevention interventions. In fact, systematically accounting for outcomes through health equity measures is a critical step toward developing system-level interventions to alleviate disparities. This session will provide an overview of ways to analyze and view data to reveal and address health inequities. Participants will work in small and large groups to select data that is relevant to an example prevention program.
