Why Equity Matters: Creating Healthy Communities

Thursday, April 26, 2018 1:30 – 2:30 p.m. EDT

Join the Institute for Public Health Innovation for a 1-hour webinar to explore health equity and why equity matters. The webinar will highlight data related to health equity in the Virginia, DC, and Maryland region. It will also provide an overview of the 1-day, in-person workshop that IPHI will conduct on May 31, 2018 that provides tools that professionals and grassroots leaders can use to promote improved health for all residents of their communities.

Learning Objectives: In our communities, there are groups who systematically experience higher rates of disease and mortality across many physical and mental health conditions. These inequities prevent individuals, families, and communities from enjoying long, productive lives and reaching their full potential.

At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • explain key terms such as equity and population health;
  • recognize why equity matters in their work; and
  • describe how implementing an equity lens can help families and communities meet their full potential.
