Information collected includes the population(s) served, the county (or counties) impacted by those services, how the service(s) expected to mitigate health disparities or improve health equity, what metrics and measures were used to evaluate impact and success, and what opportunities for service replication and sustainability might be applicable to other communities and/or counties.
