Getting from the Data Sharing Land of No onto Pathways to Yes: Navigating Data Sharing Projects for Non-Attorneys


November 16, 2022 | 1 – 2:30 p.m. EST

Data sharing, particularly cross-sector data sharing, is easier said than done. Inflexible and out-of-touch data laws and a lack of a replicable data sharing framework can result in a data sharing proposal’s untimely demise. This webinar will provide an exploration of a new structured approach to successful data sharing initiatives, as outlined in a recently released resource from the Network for Public Health Law and Data Across Sectors for Health (DASH): Pathways to Yes: A legal framework for achieving data sharing for health, well-being, and equity.

It is designed for entities that want to share data but don’t know how or where to begin the process; as well as those that have run into obstacles in their data-sharing planning; including the “culture of ‘no’,” a factor that inhibits or prohibits data sharing based on an incomplete understanding of when and how laws (particularly health data privacy laws) permit data sharing.  

By attending this webinar, you will:

  • learn how to create a structured approach to executing a successful data-sharing initiative
  • obtain strategies for overcoming barriers to data sharing


  • Chris Alibrandi O’Connor, J.D., deputy director, Network for Public Health Law, Mid-States Region Office
  • Stephen Murphy, J.D., senior public health attorney, Network for Public Health Law, Mid-States Region Office

Note: A second webinar, November 30, 2022, 1:00 – 2:30 p.m. EST, on Pathways to Yes, will focus on data sharing for attorneys.

CLE credits will not be offered for this webinar.
