We are in transition…
We would like to take the opportunity to share an exciting upcoming change for us: we will soon be changing our name! However, we assure you we are committed to continuing our work in advocating for policies that promote place-based equity, and we hope to grow and expand that work in the future.
This name change is happening on a national level, as there are 19 teams across the United States that are affiliated with the National Collaborative for Health Equity under the (now former) project title ‘Place Matters’.
We hope to make the transition as seamless as possible. If you have used our former logo or name on any materials, documents, or websites, please suspend any further future use. We will be transitioning to the new name and logo shortly.
Thank you for your continued support and partnership!
OUR 2014 Education REPORT
In 2014, our team produced our Community Health Equity Report on Educational Policies in an effort to examine how well the public education system is addressing our highest need neighborhoods. Specifically, the report looks at neighborhood characteristics, school discipline policies, and possible effects of school choice. The report was released on November 15, 2014 at the GradNation Community Summit.
OUR 2012 Community Equity and Health REPORT In 2012, our team, along with the Joint Center for Political & Economic Studies, released the report PLACE MATTERS for Health in Orleans Parish: Ensuring Opportunities for Good Health for All. This report outlines policy recommendations that serve as directives for our mission. You can access the report at http://www.orleansplacematters.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/CHER-Final-text.pdf.
