The quality of one’s health goes beyond individual behaviors and often has
to do with the place a person lives in.

Please join Central Valley Health Policy Institute for the Fair Housing
Data Conference Telling the Whole Fair Housing Story from a Data-Based
Perspective on Monday, December 4, 2017, from 8:30am to 2pm, at the Fresno
State Smittcamp Alumni House.

The conference aims to discuss the use of data as a tool to support the
stories of residents in the community and to explore the roles of research
scientists, lawyers, and neighborhoods in achieving fair housing in Fresno
County. The conference will assess the state of existing data narratives
and identify data collection and analysis opportunities to reveal obstacles
to fair housing. We hope to see our colleagues from all disciplines
including public health, social sciences, engineering, and business, as we
believe it will take all of us to create a data-informed plan for Fresno in
the next two years to create healthy, equitable neighborhoods.

There will be two panels and two breakout sessions to discuss the following
topics: legal questions about fair housing, building a research data
infrastructure, and collecting research priorities from community. We are
very excited to welcome Dr Chris Benner as our keynote speaker. Dr Chris
Benner is the Dorothy E. Everett Chair in Global Information and Social
Entrepreneurship, Director of the Everett Program for Digital Tools for
Social Innovation, and Professor of Environmental Studies and Sociology at
the University of California, Santa Cruz. He is co-author of Just Growth:
Inclusion and Prosperity in America’s Metropolitan Regions, and his
research focuses on the relationships between technological change,
regional development, and structures of economic opportunity.

The conference is free and parking and meals will be provided.

Please RSVP by replying to this email or calling Diahann Gutierrez at (559)
228-2150 by November 30th.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me through email at or (559)-228-2162 .
