With support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Culture of Health Leaders program, EAC staff are working to develop a set of health inequity indicators for New Jersey. The focus of this project is on examining “upstream” or social determinants of health. The EAC team developed a screening approach to better understand disproportionate environmental burden as a potential indicator of health inequity. Additional indicators are under development.
