How community data can drive system change — was the key focus for the County Health Rankings event hosted by KHI on April 13, 2017. More than 40 participants, including elected officials and leaders in health care and public health were in attendance and participated in engaging conversation about improving the health of Kansans. If you were unable to attend this convening, KHI has released an event recap, highlighting the key themes that were discussed during the day and offering questions for future discussions.
