Resource Summary: This webinar introduces the Community Commons resource and how it can serve as a great tool to help health centers collect disaggregated data on Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians, and Pacific Islanders (AA&NHPIs). It provides a live demonstration of Community Commons’ mapping technology features and their Needs Assessment Toolkit. Speakers demonstrate how these tools can be used to inform a health center’s community health needs assessment and increase knowledge of available data resources. This will help to improve health center capacity to monitor and track the needs of medically underserved areas and populations.
