WORKING WELL AND BEING WELL: Managing Toxic Stress Impact on Infant Mortality and Maternal Health, Climate Change and the Housing Crisis During COVID-19 and Beyond.

In September 2020 FIHI hosted a virtual multi-day webinar – WORKING WELL AND BEING WELL: Managing Toxic Stress Impact on Infant Mortality and Maternal Health, Climate Change and the Housing Crisis During COVID-19 and Beyond. The panelists used local-level data to explore social and economic factors related to climate change, environmental hazards, affordable housing, infant mortality and maternal health, and discussed emotional and social resiliency in terms of community preparedness, services and an equitable response. FIHI also shared local and state-level resources for policy and program recommendations with the goal of building wellness and capacity within our communities to be self-sufficient and self-sustaining.

County Health Rankings 2020 Reports

This convening will be guided by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin’s Population Health Institute’s annual County Health Rankings. For nine consecutive years, FIHI has coordinated the state release of the Rankings to facilitate development of community action plans. The County Health Rankings show us that where we live matters to our health. The Rankings compare the health of nearly all counties in the U.S. and provide local-level data that allows each to compare with other state counties on a range of factors that influence health – jobs, education, housing, community safety, diet and exercise, and other areas to ensure that every community is a healthy place to live, learn, work, and play.

The 2020 state reports show how health outcomes and factors differ by place within each state and highlights how health differs among racial and ethnic groups within places. The Rankings are meant to generate conversation about ways that communities can work together to improve the conditions that affect our health.
