Hillsborough Township Selected by City Health Dashboard’s “Put Us On the Map Challenge”

Have you ever wondered which neighborhoods in our city have the highest rates of diabetes or high school completion rates? Or how air pollution affects life expectancy?  

Hillsborough Township was one of 29 winners chosen by City Health Dashboard in their “Put us on the Map Challenge”, a national database that reports on more than 26 metrics and drivers of health and wellness. 

“This will allow Hillsborough to access a variety of data and features, exploring how social, economic, and environmental influences affect our community’s health and well-being. We’ll also be able to compare ourselves to other cities of similar size to learn how they successfully address key challenges,” reported Hillsborough Township Health Officer Siobhan Spano. 

The Dashboard Challenge provided an opportunity for smaller cities like Hillsborough Township to finally be put on the map and have the information readily available to be utilized to work for change.  Hillsborough was selected because of its track record of developing public-private partnerships, such as the Health Department’s COVID Community Collaborative. This group meets monthly to identify and address key issues related to COVID-19 as well as health disparities among residents.

Now that Hillsborough is on the Dashboard, users can access accurate and actionable data for the community and its neighborhoods. 

“Thank you to the diligent efforts of our Health team, led by Health Officer Siobhan Spano in getting Hillsborough on the Dashboard,” commented Mayor Shawn Lipani.
