The Oregon Health Authority Office of Equity and Inclusion and REAL: Reject Economic Ableist Limits are collaborating on a community meeting, asking for your help in planning for the implementation of the Oregon House Bill 2134 for the collection of race, ethnicity, language and disability (REAL D) demographic data. We want to learn about data collection and analysis needs related to social and health indicators for disability and intersecting communities. You may ask - REAL and Health? Economics? Yes, economic justice impacts our health. When we talk about health in these meetings, we are also considering the social determinants of health such as employment, insurance, income, poverty, transportation, and so on.
Your feedback is needed to prioritize the type of data implemented with the REAL D standards so that information from the Oregon Health Authority can be used to promote the health of people in the disability and intersecting communities.
