Release of the NEW County Health Rankings: Where we live, learn, work and play matters to our health. The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the University of Wisconsin's Population Health Institute have released the third annual County Health Rankings. Nearly every county in the country is ranked on health outcomes (how healthy we are) and on health factors (how healthy we can be). This information helps counties see where they are doing well and where improvement is needed to ensure that every community is a healthy place to live, learn, work and play.

The UDS Mapper is an interactive web atlas designed to help inform users about the current geographic extent of U.S. federally (Section 330)-funded health centers. The tool will assist in evaluating the geographic reach, penetration, and growth of the Section 330-funded Health Center Program and its relationship to other federally-linked health resources. The UDS Mapper is available at www.udsmapper.org
This toolkit is designed to help strengthen the capacity of U.S. health centers to assist with international development and humanitarian assistance, and to help provide a guide for those interested in working abroad. The toolkit provides anecdotal guidance as well as resources to help health center staff and health center organizations develop their own unique niche in the international world. Provides helpful information for health centers already engaged in international activities and thosethat want to start. Please email email@example.com with any feedback, comments, or suggestions.
The Uniform Data System (UDS) is an annual reporting system used by all federally-funded health centers to report data on utilization, patient demographics, insurance status, managed care, prenatal care and birth outcomes, diagnoses, and financing. UDS assists with program management, policy development and overall accounting for the programs. It is maintained by the Bureau of Primary Health Care Office of Data, Evaluation, Analysis and Research, but is also available at NACHC. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
