Two presentations focused on collaborative efforts at the city level:
1) Prosper Waco: Connecting our Communities by Focusing the Effort (Fitz)  Prosper Waco is a collective impact initiative focused on the Greater Waco Community. In a partnership with the City, we were able to focus community-wide efforts both in subject matter and geographical location, East Waco. The neighborhood of East Waco has higher poverty rates, lower educational attainment, and poorer health outcomes that other neighborhoods in Waco, Texas. This presentation will walk attendees through the process of partnering with a local government entity, identifying partner local organizations, and working with organizations to move towards an outcome-based data collection.
2) Moving from Health Impact Assessment to Community Indicators: Lessons Learned from San Francisco (Wall Shui)  Moving from Health Impact Assessment to Community Indicators: Lessons Learned from San Francisco (Wall Shui) The San Francisco Department of Public Health (SFDPH), Program on Health, Equity, & Sustainability has been a pioneer and a leader in the practice of Health Impact Assessment (HIA) in the United States. From our HIA practice, a vast amount of useful, geographic data has been generated to inform decision making activities. To ensure that this information is used routinely for health informed policy making and planning, SFDPH has developed two unique indicator databases.  This presentation will provide background information on the two large HIA projects that led to the development of the databases, illustrate the evolution and utility of these indicator websites, and discuss how community indicator systems or data tools systems can be powerful outputs from the practice of HIA and can support Health in All Policies work.
