University of California San Francisco Give to UCSF

Redlining, a discriminatory practice established by the federal government in the 1930s to deny mortgage insurance in “risky” neighborhoods characterized by higher proportions of Blacks and other people of color, established a lasting legacy of systemic racism, environmental inequities, and present-day health disparities in major American cities.

Under the direction of Dr. Debby Oh, the UCSF Population Health Data Initiative, and in collaboration with the UCSF EaRTH Center, California redlining data is now incorporated into the UCSF Health Atlas alongside 100+ other area attributes including demographic, socioeconomic, environmental, community, neighborhood, health and health care data. This will provide a valuable tool to visualize the intersection of social/environmental and health outcome factors in affected communities in California as well as to serve as a basis for new studies to assess the contemporary influence of redlining in health disparities.

Please join us and learn more about how you can use the UCSF Health Atlas to better understand redlining data in context.
