This webinar provided grantmakers with a deep dive into the 2012 County Health Rankings, which were released April 3, 2012. This webinar was an opportunity for grantmakers to explore the County Health Rankings and Roadmaps program and resources, including an interactive web site that compares each county’s overall health with other counties on a state-by-state basis and guides users to a host of new tools to help communities put the Rankings into action.
It identified strategies funders can use for the County Health Rankings and Roadmaps to draw attention to and address the multiple determinants of health in their communities including specific opportunities around the Rankings release and Roadmaps to Health Community Grants Program.
