The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) has launched a Data for Health initiative to understand how data on health can be used to help people lead healthier lives.  Rural health data is sometimes difficult to come by.  This is a great opportunity to let RWJF know what data is needed to improve rural health outcomes.  RWJF will host a series of “Learning What Works” events in five cities across the country including Philadelphia, Phoenix, Des Moines, San Francisco and Charleston, South Carolina.  NOSORH wants to provide the rural voice for this initiative.  Ultimately, RWJF wants to understand how communities are using and want to use the data, and what systems need to be in place so that it can be easily accessed and shared.
