Achieving Health Equity – One Policy at a Time Webinar

Wednesday, September 7th, 2016

September 22, 2016
2 to 3 PM CT / 3 to 4 PM ET

In 2015, the Washington State Department of Health successfully added health equity review requirements to its analysis of proposed legislation: (1) describe any positive or negative impact the bill may have on tribal health concerns and (2) describe any positive or negative impact the bill may have on health equity or health disparities. This webinar will discuss how the department used policy and administrative levers to make this change.

Presenters will: 1) Describe components of a “health equity lens” used to analyze proposed state legislation; 2) Articulate opportunities and challenges to applying a “health equity lens”; and 3) Share examples of training and resource materials.

For registration and more information, visit https://nnlm.gov/bhic/8t5k.
