After years of struggling to close health disparities, a new movement has taken root: local health departments are using a set of strategic practices to confront the power imbalances and forms of oppression at the root of health inequities, change the conversation about what creates health equity, develop leadership and support innovation, and build a movement for health equity.
What does it look like for a community to advance health equity? How do communities strengthen relationships and build capacity to create a culture of health? Join us for a discussion with the Jefferson County Health Action Partnership, anchored in Birmingham, Alabama, where they have made health equity a priority. Members from the Partnership will share how they strategically engaged local and national partners to create conditions that have greatly improved health in Jefferson County. They will highlight successes from their work on increasing health equity and offer practical guidance for how you can take action in your community.
