Lauren Tobias Discusses Health Equity with Wade Norwood

August 1, 2022

Common Ground Health is a regional planning organization that covers the nine-county Finger Lakes region and works to achieve positive health care outcomes through regional collaborations and partnerships, to bring focus to community health issues via data analysis, resident engagement and solution implementation. In this interview, Norwood notes: "Reducing health disparities and promoting health equity are central to successful regional health planning. COVID-19 brought to the forefront the importance of having health information that can support planning and evaluating community interventions – and the importance of having regionwide collaboration to engage and respond to the unique needs of rural residents and families in low-income households and to communities of color."
