Championing Transformative Change to Advance Health Equity

Webinar //


Feb 15 2018, 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM PST


During the fourth webinar of the "Advancing Health Equity in Local Health Departments" series, we’ll discuss:

  • What do we mean by “transformative change” and why this is essential to advancing health equity?
  • How Douglas County (Omaha) is building a supportive cohort of local health equity leaders.
  • How Minnesota is changing the narrative around health and confronting root causes of inequity.
  • How HIP and others are building a health equity movement and supporting innovation.
  • Resources to help your health department champion transformative change to advance health equity.

We recommend folks read the Alameda County and Kansas City case studies before the webinar.
