Exclusive Briefing: U.S. News Healthiest Communities Two Year Rankings and New Platform Enhancements

Event //


Apr 02 2019, 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM EST


Join us for an exclusive briefing on the second annual Healthiest Communities report, a collaboration between U.S. News & World Report and the Aetna Foundation!

The annual report and accompanying analysis are based on an evaluation of nearly 3,000 communities nationwide across 81 health-driving metrics in 10 categories, from education and population health to infrastructure and environment. Now with new site enhancements and a data explorer, the project serves as an interactive tool to inform residents, health care leaders and elected officials about best practices and accelerate progress for community health across the country. Presenters will provide an in-depth look at the year two rankings, insights from the research across social determinants of health categories, as well as highlight the new data and planning tools available publicly.
