Neighborhood Health Dashboard

Blue Shield of California created the Neighborhood Health Dashboard generator to be accessible to anyone and everyone--not only members or partners because we believe providing free and open access to information is imperative to elevating community health across the entire state of California. By democratizing data through technology and storytelling, Blue Shield of California has innovated how community groups and individuals interact with information and create opportunities for action, breaking down barriers to creating change.
