Sarah Kennedy Selected to Build Data Sharing Capacity through the DASH Mentor Program

Sarah Kennedy, Generate Health’s Manager of Data, Evaluation and Epidemiology has been selected by Data Across Sectors for Health (DASH), a national program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, to participate in a 10-month mentorship program led by Civic Canopy to advance our local efforts to share and use multi-sector data to improve maternal and infant health equity. As a DASH Mentee, we will connect with communities from around the country through All In: Data for Community Health, a peer-to-peer learning network that builds local capacity to systematically combine health data with data from other sectors like education, social services, and housing to acquire a more complete picture of the factors that influence health.

Civic Canopy will assist Mentees in implementing a data-driven approach in their own communities using collective indicators to improve community health. Topics include use of existing community, state, or national indicator datasets; facilitating cross-sector partnerships to embrace and integrate data as part of a shared vision; and strategic planning and implementation using the common indicators.

We hope that our participation in the DASH Mentor Program can help us spread the impact of Generate Health Initiatives within and beyond our community.  Sarah is excited to make meaningful connections with leaders in the field to accelerate learning and make significant progress towards aligning multi-sector partners around data-driven approaches that promote health equity.
