CROW has long been dedicated to supporting the advancement of women and girls in the
Memphis community. One way we do this by providing research support to local agencies that work directly with women and girls in the Memphis
area. In addition to research support, CROW also works to address issues such as women and childcare, infant mortality, and pregnant and parenting teens.
Now we have taken it a step further. In an effort to assess the health of women in
Shelby County, CROW partnered with the Women's Foundation for a Greater Memphis and
the Ozanne Customer Analytics Group of West Haven, Connecticut to create a health
report card. Using the most current data available, grades were given in areas such
as reproductive health, preventative medical practices, and chronic illness. Grades
were assessed using the national Healthy People 2020* goals.
