Advancing Health Equity in Local Health Departments: 4-Part Webinar Series

Updated: Jan 3, 2020

Over and over, health departments are asking: “What strategic steps can we take to advance health equity at our health department?” Join Health Impact Partners (HIP) to hear success stories from across the United States to answer this question and learn about the recently released Health Equity Guide, our newest resource to support health departments in advancing health equity comprehensively and meaningfully.

HIP is excited to host this 4-part webinar series with national experts and local health departments to discuss their work to advance health equity. Each webinar will focus on a set of strategic practices that health departments can take to pursue a wall-to-wall transformation of how they work internally, with communities, and alongside other government agencies.

These webinars are co-sponsored with the Government Alliance on Race and Equity, the National Collaborative for Health Equity, and NACCHO’s Health Equity and Social Justice Committee. The webinar series is funded by The California Endowment.
