The recent COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted already existing health disparities among vulnerable populations, including Asian American (AA), Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (NH/PI) as well as Migratory and Seasonal Agricultural Worker (MSAW) communities. Disaggregated data reveals health disparities within these diverse populations and demonstrates the role of data in advancing health equity.

In this webinar, the AAPCHO and the National Center for Farmworker Health (NCFH) shared lessons learned and promising practices from organizational initiatives focused on data disaggregation. By sharing such insights and strategies, attendees were offered ways to improve granular data collection and design and implement targeted health and social interventions. Speakers also discussed how disaggregated data plays a crucial role in storytelling for underserved and underrepresented populations.

Learning Objectives:

After this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Know how to adapt demographic questions to collect granular data that is the most useful for identifying disparities in subgroups of various communities/identities; 
  • Know about about advances in health equity among AAs and NH/PIs made possible through data disaggregated data; and
  • Understand the role of data disaggregation in advancing health equity through storytelling.
