A monthly digest of news, events, and opportunities from All In: Data for Community Health, a learning network of communities across the country that are testing exciting new ways to transform health through multi-sector partnerships to share data

Health Care Data 101

DASH released a new informational guide that serves as a starting point for non-health sector professionals who want to further investigate the health care data available in their local communities and consider how to best leverage it to tackle priorities identified by multi-sector partnerships. 

Two New Partners Join All In

All In is delighted to welcome two new partners to the learning network - New Jersey Health Initiatives (NJHI) and the Public Health Institute's Population Health Innovation Lab (PHIL)! NJHI, the statewide grantmaking program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, supports innovations and drives conversations to build healthier communities across the State of New Jersey. PHIL designs, catalyzes and accelerates innovative approaches that advance health outcomes and well-being in California. Together, the two programs are currently funding 35 local multi-sector collaborations working to improve community health. 

We've Got a New Look!

You may have noticed we have new logo, but we're still the same All In! We updated our brand to reflect the meaningful, vibrant relationships that are being fostered across the country.
