Asian Americans, Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders represent a growing proportion of health center patients. However, data and research on AA&NHPIs are limited. A scarcity of such data makes it difficult for health centers serving AA&NHPIs to demonstrate and address needs of their patients.

In this second webinar of our Collecting Data on AA&NHPIs for Community Health Center Needs Assessments: A Learning Series, we will provide an introduction to the Community Commons resource. Community Commons is a platform that provides public access to thousands of meaningful data layers that allow mapping and reporting capabilities to help users gain a deeper understanding of community assets and opportunities. The team from Community Commons will provide a demonstration of the mapping tools, data layering and visualizations options, as well as an overview of their community health needs assessment toolkit.

By the end of the webinar, participants will:

  1. Learn about Community Commons’ mapping technology features and Needs Assessment Toolkit
  2. Identify ways Community Commons tools can be used to inform a health center’s community health needs assessment
  3. Increase knowledge of available data resources to improve health center capacity to monitor and track the needs of medically underserved areas and populations.
