July's cyber-seminar took a look at measuring health disparities and highlighted a tool, HD*Calc, a freely available statistical software designed to generate multiple summary measures to evaluate and monitor health disparities so to researchers and practitioners can inform their programs and improve the community's health. We were delighted to have an overview of the tool from Dr. Nancy Breen (NCI) and then to have Dr. Eva Wong (Seattle-King County Health Department) share an example of how their county has already been applying HD*Calc in their work and the impact.
Now it is your turn to share your experience and knowledge...ask a question of the speakers or your fellow R2R members, share your stories of health disparities and measurement. What lessons have you learned or additional tools have you used that others might benefit from?
