Applying a Health Equity Lens to Public Health Practice
December 12, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Increasingly, health departments are serving as leaders in communities to address the root causes of health inequities. This requires changing systems and policies, and working with non-traditional partners to ensure that all people have the opportunity to attain their highest level of health. Join PHNCI as we explore the stories of two health departments working to transform communities such that zip codes do not dictate health outcomes. Featured speakers include:
- Jeanne Ayers, Assistant Commissioner, Minnesota Department of Health
- Umair Shah, Executive Director, and Jennifer Hadayia, Senior Policy Planner/Health Equity Coordinator, Harris County Public Health (TX)
