Leah Hendey, MPP, Senior Research Associate at the Urban Institute, joined the podcast to reflect on her experiences co-directing the National Neighborhood Indicators Partnership (NNIP), a nationwide effort to advance the use of neighborhood-level data to drive local decision-making. NNIP is led by the Urban Institute and a network of 32 partners representing local data intermediaries across the country. Hendey discussed the role local data intermediaries play in their communities, explained how neighborhood-level data can be used to understand and address issues of health equity, and shared examples of communities that have successfully used neighborhood information systems in innovative ways to solve pressing public health challenges.
