Description

During this webinar, we’ll discuss questions such as what is evidence? what is its role in decision-making?  and how might you include evidence in your strategy selection process to support local change? Then we’ll explore two resources that make research and evidence accessible to inform decision-making.

  1. What Works for Health provides an online menu of evidence-informed policies and programs that can make a difference locally.
  2. Streetsmart, a web-based tool, illuminates the relationships between transportation strategies and community improvement goals using the best evidence available.

We’ll conclude by sharing ideas for what else might influence strategy selection and the role of evidence in public processes.
