Using data from the U.S. Census Bureau and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Opportunity Atlas tracks the outcomes of 20 million Americans from childhood to their mid-30s in all 70,000 census tracts with the ability to analyze findings by race, gender, and income. In the past, we could measure neighborhood wealth and poverty at a given moment, but never before could we see how early childhood experiences can influence income into adulthood.

The promotion of health equity is central to Trust for America’s Health’s (TFAH) work to support optimal health for every person and community.

As a part of this effort, TFAH produced a 4-part webinar series called Taking Action to Promote Health Equity—Using the Lessons from Cutting-Edge Practices to Improve Health and Well Being. The goal is to shine a bright light on some of the most compelling and replicable activities that help advance health equity.  Program speakers share their lessons learned through practice and experiences that are transferable to diverse community settings – large or small, urban or rural and with substantial or minimal resources.  And while a few of the examples may be familiar, the webinar series features excellent work that has not received much national attention.

We are still getting played by Big Tobacco. This video brings to light the things that the corrective statements left out such as the disparities in the newspapers running the corrective statements. Big Tobacco still cannot be trusted. We cannot dim the light on tobacco prevention and cessation. We need to break the cycle.
