A New Health Equity Graphic from RWJF
December 21, 2022 by Chaya Merrill, DrPH
RWJF surveyed the community to gather perspectives on their original bike graphic. The survey results led them to create both an updated bike graphic and a graphic based on an entirely new concept, which uses a curb to visualize the issue and introduces different characteristics of individuals and their environments. Their goal was to offer a graphic that depicted a more real-world situation. Both graphics are below.
As RWJF’s graphic artist, Joan Barlow, has noted: good design advances conversations and makes choices clearer. I applaud RWJF for giving us the artwork to have meaningful discussions that lead to change.
