New section

Not-for-profit teaching hospitals are required to conduct a community health needs assessment (CHNA) every three years. This collaborative process engages communities, public health experts, and clinical leaders to identify and intervene on the most important health needs in the local community.

The 2017 Health Equity Research Snapshot features seven videos of exemplary community-partnered CHNA processes from AAMC member hospitals across the country that have successfully impacted the health of local residents. We solicited these videos from member hospitals to demonstrate the diverse efforts that aim to understand and eliminate health inequities.
