How might a loss of jobs in the transportation sector affect deaths of despair, such as those caused by alcohol, drugs or suicide? How might broadband access affect people’s movement from rural to urban areas? Insights into questions such as these are being provided for the first time by the Well-being in the Nation (WIN) measures, which examine how data across sectors might influence population and community health. They were co-developed by numerous federal agencies and 100+ organizations and communities – and facilitated by 100 Million Healthier Lives at WE in the World, with support from the National Committee on Vital and Health Statistics. This webinar/discussion will focus on the process of developing the measures, review the first multi-sector findings regarding community well-being, and share insights relating to their application.
