DOH-Charlotte launches Community Health Dashboard
DOH-Charlotte introduces an interactive dashboard that gives the community access to health data and allows residents to stay informed about what is happening in the county. It takes the conversation beyond disease outcomes and explores the relationship between environments, behaviors, illness and length of life. The new dashboard provides data in a way that makes it compelling and actually tells the story of how the numbers have a real effect on health. This tool will allow for a more targeted response to specific community needs. DOH-Charlotte is hopeful residents and community organizations will find multiple ways to utilize all it has to offer.
