April 2018 General Member Webinar
Health begins where we live, learn, work, worship and play. Social justice affects the way people live, impacts their risks for illness, and their chances of premature death. Can public health influence the unequal structuring of life conditions? During this webinar, our featured speaker, Richard Hofrichter, the Senior Director of Health Equity at the National Association of County and City Health Officials, will discuss how public health chronic disease prevention and health promotion practitioners can create opportunities for building a public narrative about the root causes of health disparities.
Additionally, two state chronic disease programs will provide examples of how they are addressing some of these root causes in their state. The webinar will conclude with a short update from the Health Equity Council’s Institutional Equity Tool Project.
