    Presentation Description:

    This presentation will introduce the Greater Rochester LARC Initiative, a successful community-level program for increasing adolescent use of long-acting reversible contraception (LARC) in Rochester, NY. It will compare data on teen pregnancy and adolescent LARC use in New York State overall and in Rochester using data from the New York State Perinatal Data Profile and the Youth Risk Behavior Survey. It will provide an overview of the Contraceptive CHOICE Project, how that program informed the development of the Greater Rochester LARC Initiative, and the innovative components of the LARC Initiative's unique implementation of a "community detailing" model. It will review the results of our recently published article, "Impact of the Rochester LARC Initiative on Adolescents' Utilization of Long-Acting Reversible Contraception," and will review the LARC Initiative's future goals of dissemination and implementation across New York State.

    Presentation Description:

    Communities, public health professionals, and researchers recognize that environmental factors contribute to the health inequities in the U.S. Inequities persist despite well-developed systems for both public health and environmental protection, in part because these management systems often operate in isolated siloes. This webinar presents three local environmental health initiatives (lead in housing in Rochester, NY; built environment in Duluth, MN; and air pollution from ports in southern California), highlighting the role of local public health in each.. Throughout the country, communities are working collaboratively at the local level to shape decisions about the built environment to protect vulnerable populations. This presentation sheds light on how local health departments can constructively contribute to bridging the silos of environment and health and collaboratively address longstanding environmental injustices in sustainable, effective, and equitable ways.

    Presentation Description:

    Available in the US since early 2007, use of e-cigarettes increased dramatically from 2013-2019.  Although some combustible cigarette smokers use e-cigarettes to quit smoking, most users of e-cigarettes are youth and young adults.  

    The overall effect of e-cigarettes on population health will depend on 3 factors  1) health effects of e-cigarettes  2) specific effects on youth and young adults and use by this population, many of whom have not yet smoked cigarettes   3) efficacy in increasing quit rates by cigarette smokers and use by smokers who want to quit.  

    However, the overall impact of e-cigarette use on the health of our population is controversial, in large part because of limited knowledge in each of the three areas mentioned above.  In this webinar, we will discuss current knowledge around health effects, specific effect on youth and young adults, and efficacy for smoking cessation. We will also discuss the role of regulation in the e-cigarette landscape.

    Presentation Description:

    Most US cities lack actionable data, specific to their jurisdictions, on population health status, health determinants and equity. To address this gap, a team at NYU Grossman School of Medicine, in collaboration with NYU Wagner School of Public Service, the National Resource Network, the International City/County Management Association and the National League of Cities, developed the City Health Dashboard (CHDB) for all 750+ U.S. cities with populations 50,000 or above, including 12 in New York State. Learn about how health departments, city governments, policy makers, and other local stakeholders have used this free online data resource to more fully understand local health needs and pressing challenges, better target resources to areas with the largest health inequities, and develop more effective programs and policies.

    Shoshanna Levine--Program Director, DrPH, New York University

    Becky Ofrane--MPH, Lead of Engagement and Partnerships for New York University’s City Health Dashboard
