Health Equity Seminar

Health equity is a term we often hear these days, but how do we implement policies and procedures that will make a difference? Join us to learn more about equity in action, the 10 Essential Public Health Services, and community research best-practices. Participants will hear from community partners statewide who are working to address equity. We will end with a practical exercise to help you implement what you learn.

We will offer two additional offerings of this training, one asynchronous version and another live virtual session in the fall.
