to Health Equity Matters,
an electronic newsletter intended to promote awareness of minority health and health equity issues that affect our work at CDC and in the broader public health community, support the achievement of our goal to eliminate health disparities, and foster ongoing communication and collaboration.
It is hard to believe that we are coming to the end of another year, and what a year it has been! In 2013, our nation celebrated the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington; we remembered the life and legacy of President John F. Kennedy on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of his assassination; and the whole world paused to honor the life, love, and revolutionary contributions of Nelson Mandela in his passing at the age of 95. Mr. Mandela wrote in Long Walk to Freedom (1995), “I am fundamentally an optimist. Whether that comes from nature or nurture, I cannot say. Part of being optimistic is keeping one’s head pointed toward the sun, one’s feet moving forward.” We salute these great men of courage, integrity, and sacrifice, and are inspired by their embodiment of leadership, hope, and perseverance. These same characteristics are needed if we are to win the battle to reduce preventable health disparities and premature mortality in the U.S. and globally, and in this issue of Health Equity Matters, we honor John Auerbach – former state health officer for the State of Massachusetts, as our Health Equity Champion.
This year also marked the 25th anniversary of CDC’s Office of Minority Health and Health Equity, the 20th anniversary of the Office of Health Disparities in the National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases (NCEZID), and the 10th anniversary of the National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention’s (NCHHSTP) Office of Health Equity.
In addition, CDC’s Office of Women’s Health and the Diversity and Inclusion Management Program have been joined with the Office of Minority Health and Health Equity to create a more robust focal point for cross-cutting leadership, coordination, and impact. We believe this realignment will facilitate even broader awareness of issues related to women’s health and bolster efforts to eliminate gender-related health inequities; and contribute to CDC initiatives supporting a diverse and inclusive workforce well prepared to respond to the public health needs of an increasingly diverse U.S. population.
I am proud of the work CDC is doing toward health equity. Significant efforts are being directed toward advancing both the science and practice of health equity. For example, NCHHSTP led the development of
3 special issues of Public Health Reports focused on the social determinants of health;
the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion recently published
A Practitioner’s Guide for Advancing Health Equity;
the work of NCEZID in
monitoring the health of newly arriving refugees and immigrants;
2013 CDC Health Disparities and Inequalities Report
was released in November.
We also co-hosted with our sister federal agencies – the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) and the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP) meetings with Dr. Howard Koh, Assistant Secretary for Health (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services) and Sir Michael Marmot, Director of the International Institute for Society and Health, University College London and former Chair of the WHO Commission on the Social Determinants of Health, to review progress in the development of the Healthy People 2020 Social Determinants of Health topic area and emerging work of the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) related to surveillance of social determinants.
These efforts and more described in the current issue of Health Equity Matters
speak to interest in and real momentum around health equity at CDC.
On behalf of the Office of Minority Health and Health Equity,
I wish you a happy holiday season, and good health in the coming year!

OMHHE expresses its condolences on the passing of Hawai’i State Health Officer, Loretta “Deliana” Fuddy. Fuddy, who served as Hawaii’s State Health Director since March 2011 and spent 30 years working in health and human services, was a great supporter of health equity. Though she will be greatly missed, her legacy will live on through her important work on the social determinants of health and her efforts to achieve health equity in Hawaii.

State of Health Equity at the CDC Forum
More than 200 CDC staff convened in Atlanta November 20 for the second State of Health Equity at CDC Forum:
Moving from Models to Measures to Action.
The Forum, organized by OMHHE with input from across CDC, delved into measurement issues that can enhance our ability to act.
This year’s Forum included nine speakers on wide-ranging measurement topics including the life course perspective, and how it impacts monitoring health disparities among people with disabilities; using a national surveillance system to assess the social determinants of health; assessing health disparities and health equity through Healthy People 2020;
using health equity assessments to inform public health interventions; and drivers for improving public health practice and the public’s health.
During these panel presentations and discussions, participants grappled with issues such as how to incorporate social determinants of health (SDOH) into national surveillance systems and other data collection efforts; how the life course perspective can inform measurement of health disparities;
assumptions and value judgments underlying specific measures of health disparities and health equity;
and existing gaps, such as the need to better include foreign-born populations in conceptual frameworks and data collection efforts. Participants asked thought provoking questions, and shared current efforts to address various challenges in their own research and program areas.
"Our goal is to move health equity at CDC from aspiration and concept to concrete and actionable research methods, surveillance, and public health strategies. Working together, we can advance the science and practice of health equity,"
said Dr. Liburd in her closing remarks.
OMHHE outlined its plans to hold future Forum events, which will focus in 2014 on essential elements of health equity programs, in 2015 on policies that support health equity, and in 2016 on infrastructure that supports health equity. OMHHE also described its upcoming work to develop a Health Equity Framework for Action.
CDC Health Disparities and Inequalities Report 2013
The CDC Health Disparities and Inequalities Report — United States, 2013 published in CDC’s
Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR)
was released November 21, 2013. The report provides analysis and reporting of health disparities and inequalities by sex, race, and ethnicity, income, education, disability status and other characteristics in the United States.

CDC Leadership Summit with Sir Michael Marmot
For well over a decade now, CDC scientists and practitioners have been grappling with how to define and integrate a focus on the social determinants of health in our public health programs. What are the “social determinants of health?”
According to the World Health Organization, the social determinants of health are the circumstances in which people are born, grow up, live, work and age, and the systems put in place to deal with illness. These circumstances are in turn shaped by a wider set of forces: economics, social policies, and politics.
Social Determinants of Health Key Concepts, World Health Organization)
Simply put, health begins where we live, learn, work and play, and the opportunity for health starts long before you need medical care. (
A New Way to Talk about the Social Determinants of Health, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation).
If the opportunity for health begins in our families, neighborhoods, schools and jobs, what is the role of public health in addressing those determinants of health that are considered outside of the currently established purview of public health? This is a debate that has captured the attention of public health practitioners, but considerable movement is underway to settle this debate in the U.S. and globally
Healthy People 2020
is helping to lead the charge in the U.S. “A National agenda that communicates a vision for improving the population’s health and achieving health equity,” Healthy People 2020 is a set of specific, measurable objectives with targets to be achieved by the year 2020. These objectives are organized within distinct topic areas. In 2010, members of the Secretary’s Advisory Committee on National Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Objectives for 2020 urged Secretary Sebelius to consider adding a new topic area on the Social Determinants of Health. In response, Sir Michael Marmot, former Chair of the World Health Organization’s Commission on the Social Determinants of Health was invited to discuss the feasibility of establishing an explicit focus on the social determinants within the nation’s health objectives. Ultimately, there was agreement to develop this new topic area with leadership from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Health Resources and Services Administration.
In April of this year, Healthy People 2020 introduced the Social Determinants of Health conceptual model and initial objectives – the first in its 40 year history. The Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention hosted a meeting under the direction of Dr. Howard Koh with Sir Michael Marmot and senior leaders from across CDC, NIH and the Carter Center to showcase progress in the development and launch of the new Social Determinants of Health Topic Area; to clarify challenges,
opportunities, and next steps in promoting the topic area among stakeholders; and to exchange information about promising strategies for addressing social determinants at the federal, state, and local levels, as well as globally. The results of this meeting will be used to guide the continued development of the social determinants approach for Healthy People 2020.
“Improving health is too multifaceted to be left to those working in the health sector alone. Using a social determinants approach can reframe the way the public, policy makers, and the private sector think about achieving and sustaining health.” – Dr. Howard Koh
Health Is a Human Right: Race and Place in America
The David J. Sencer CDC Museum, located at CDC Headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia, is extending its current exhibition,
Health Is a Human Right: Race and Place in America
through Friday, February 28, 2014, coinciding with
African American History Month
exhibition extended through February
This compelling exhibition
looks back through history at how minority groups have experienced health problems differently; helps us understand why these differences persist; and chronicles efforts to reduce and eliminate health disparities.
“Health Is a Human Right” interprets minority health issues in the 20th and 21st centuries by examining the social determinants of health, drawing upon historical photographs, documents, data charts, books, public health promotional materials, multimedia, and artifacts.
Visitors and guests had an opportunity to see the exhibit on November 7th, 2013 at a special reception sponsored by the CDC Foundation and the California Endowment. Attendees included several exhibit contributors and supporters.
Examples of articles in the exhibit can be found here
Summer Internship applications season
OMHHE sponsors the CDC Undergraduate Public Health Scholars (CUPS) program, consisting of five internship opportunities taking place at four partner institutions, creating a public health workplace experience to increase student interest in minority health.
During the 2014 summer internship program, approximately 200 students will receive exciting, hands-on experiences at public health departments, community based organizations, academic institutions, and CDC. OMHHE also supports the Dr. James A. Ferguson Emerging Infectious Diseases Fellowship Program in collaboration with the National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases, which provides hands-on experience for graduate students of under-represented populations and those interested in addressing infectious diseases and health disparities in medical, dental, veterinary, pharmacy, and public health programs.
The deadline for the 2014 student applications is January 31, 2014. To learn more about the institutions where students can apply and their deadlines, visit our website
Message from the Diversity and Inclusion Management
The Diversity and Inclusion Management (DM) team is excited to join the Office of Minority Health and Health Equity. This realignment will bring more opportunities to embed DM initiatives into CDC’s organizational culture and support achieving our mission to protect the nation’s health.
Diversity is an integral part of the identity of the agency influencing public health research, disease prevention and control efforts, and day-to-day management activities. DM fosters an environment that allows the agency to leverage its diversity and inclusion in the interest of fostering innovation in the execution of our mission, ensuring greater sensitivity to diverse community perspectives, and facilitating transdisciplinary public health research and practice. In addition, a strong diversity and inclusion management program supports employees in their professional development which in turn helps the agency achieve its public health mission.
Last year, DM conducted CDC’s first-ever Diversity Culture Audit. We now have baseline data and measures from which to direct our goals related to workforce diversity, workforce inclusion and succession planning.
Engaging employees in the diversity and inclusion process is one of the keys to success. There are now 17 active Centers, Institutes and Offices (CIOs) with Diversity and Inclusion Councils and more are forming throughout the agency. More than ever, we see evidence of greater diversity and inclusion through demonstrations of appreciation and respect for people of all social and cultural backgrounds in our workforce, professional viewpoints, work styles, and unique skillsets of co-workers as well as with the populations we serve.
We look forward to the opportunities ahead to continue and expand the important DM work at CDC.
Greetings from the Office of Women’s Health
The Office of Women’s Health (OWH)
is pleased to join OMHHE as a partner in achieving CDC’s vision of health equity for all people. Since its inception, OWH has promoted the health and safety of women throughout every stage of life. That focus will continue to inform our work.
The OWH was established in 1994 and authorized by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010. The same year that the OWH began, CDC published the first recommendations for the prevention of perinatal transmission of HIV, and the U.S. passed the Violence against Women Act.
The OWH looks forward to celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2014.
Health Seminar in Brazil to discuss health equity and best practices against discrimination
CDC has been working with partners across HHS to support the U.S. - Brazil Joint Action Plan to Eliminate Racial and Ethnic Discrimination and Promote Equality (JAPER) through the establishment of a health subcommittee. The Office of Minority Health and Health Equity coordinates the U.S. participation in this subcommittee.
This is the first binational relationship that targets racial discrimination, and provides a platform for cooperation to share best practices in tackling discrimination in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), education, law enforcement, labor, health, gender-based violence, economic empowerment, and many other areas.
On February 3-6, 2014, the JAPER Health Seminar 2014 will be held in Brasilia, Brazil. Participants will work to develop a partnership between both countries on health equity, develop an action agenda, and partner with other institutions and countries with similar priorities.
Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington with the community
OMHHE participated in the 50th anniversary celebration of the March on Washington in collaboration with the Atlanta-based Martin Luther King Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change, August 23-25, 2013. OMHHE staffed a booth near the National Mall in Washington, D.C. with CDC’s Human Capital and Resources Management Office, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services,
and the HHS’ Office of Minority Health to raise awareness about health disparities and to promote enrollment in the Health Insurance Marketplaces.
The events offered a great opportunity to connect with the community, answer questions, share educational resources about disease prevention and health promotion, and provide information about career opportunities in public health.
The booth, located close to the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial, was visited by dozens of people from across the country and abroad.
The commemorations were launched on August 17, 2013, during the “Atlanta Global Freedom Expo” at The King Center in Atlanta, Georgia, where OMHHE and other CDC programs had staff representation.
CDC/ATSDR Tribal Support Unit Updates

OMHHE congratulates the AMIGAS Research Team, recipient of the Health Equity Award, and the NCHHSTP Summer Fellows Forum Team, recipient of the CDC Workforce Diversity award at the 61th Annual CDC & ASTDR Honor Awards Ceremony on August 20, 2013.
The AMIGAS Research Team, from CDC’s National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, was recognized for its scientific leadership and implementation of AMIGAS, a bilingual, evidence-based, and theoretically-grounded intervention designed to help promotoras (community health workers) increase screening for cervical cancer among never and rarely screened Latinas of Mexican descent. AMIGAS stands for Ayudando a las Mujeres con Información, Guía, y Amor para su Salud or “Helping Women with Information, Guidance, and Love for Their Health.”
AMIGAS is important because Latinas are less likely to get a Pap test than non-Hispanic white women, have a high incidence of cervical cancer, and are at high risk of dying from cervical cancer. AMIGAS is multi-generational and designed for a variety of settings and resource levels. It clarifies how information and skills learned in the intervention will help women, their families, and their communities stay healthy. CDC funded a randomized controlled trial that showed AMIGAS is effective and cost-effective in promoting Pap tests among Latinas ages 21 to 65.
Drs. Judith Lee Smith and Katherine Wilson, CDC scientists, co-developed AMIGAS with an external team, which included experts in health care system management, plain language writing, community engagement, management of community health worker programs, behavioral science, methods and statistics, economics, health disparities, and cancer prevention and control in Hispanic communities. A community health board advised the research team during each stage of intervention development. The integration of research and community expertise yielded an intervention that was culturally and linguistically appropriate for the target audience. Researchers anticipate that AMIGAS can be adapted for other traditionally medically underserved populations.
The intervention materials include a Promotora Instruction Guide, video, flip chart, message cards, body diagrams, and an Administrator’s Guide. Check the CDC website for the materials and Research Tested Intervention Programs The AMIGAS intervention is expected to be available on the CDC Gynecologic Cancers, AMIGAS website:
and on the NCI Research Tested Intervention Programs (RTIPs) website:
in early 2014.
The National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention’s (NCHHSTP) Summer Fellows Forum Team was awarded the Excellence in Human Capital Management–Workforce Diversity Award for its exceptional leadership and innovation in attracting and recruiting a diverse workforce through the NCHHSTP Summer Fellows Forum.
NCHHSTP staff established the Forum in 2008 to support the Initiative on Public Health Workforce and Leadership Development, led by Dr. Hazel Dean, Deputy Director for NCHHSTP. The purpose of the Forum is to enhance fellows’ summer experience at CDC and harness their interest in the topic areas of NCHHSTP. The forum expanded in 2012, with the launch of the
CDC Undergraduate Public Health Scholars Program (CUPS).
The CUPS program selects 200 students from across the nation to participate in a summer public health experience that offers special project assignments in NCHHSTP, other CDC programs, and partner organizations. The 6-8 week seminar series includes sessions that focus on developing leadership skills; delivering effective presentations; networking with senior leadership and peers; touring NCHHSTP laboratories and participating in laboratory exercises; and communicating research findings.
Ranell Myles, NCHHSTP Summer Fellows Forum Coordinator, accepts the Excellence in Human Capital Management–Workforce Diversity award presented by CDC Director Tom Frieden, MD, MPH, on behalf of the Summer Fellows Forum Team.

Health Equity Champion
Distinguished Professor of Practice in Health Sciences, Director, Institute on Urban Health Research & Practice, Northeastern University
I first met John Auerbach during my first year as Director of OMHHE. He was then president of the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO) and his challenge to the state health officials was to take up the charge to address health equity. Every ASTHO president selects a priority health issue or “challenge” to focus on during his/her term as president. In a letter to the members of ASTHO, he wrote: “Promoting health equity to reduce disparities is my public health challenge to ASTHO members for the year. I selected this issue because I believe it is critically important to reduce the disproportionately high burden of illness, injury and premature death that affect certain populations, including people of color and those with the lowest incomes. Every state is facing financial challenges, yet there are actions we can take to promote equity, such as making data available that highlight disparities, assessing the gaps in prevention and care efforts for target populations, and adopting at least one strategy this year that could lessen the burden of health disparities and health inequities in our home states.” Mobilizing state health agencies to pursue health equity is critical to our national efforts to reduce health disparities and achieve health equity. John Auerbach’s leadership and influence created a health equity agenda for ASTHO that continues to this day. We are honored to recognize him as a Health Equity Champion!
--Leandris C. Liburd
The Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO) nominated its former President, John Auerbach, as OMHHE’s Health Equity Champion. Formerly the state health official in Massachusetts and also for the City of Boston, Auerbach served as President of the ASTHO Board (2010-2011) and launched a Presidential Challenge on Health Equity. Since his first day, he elevated the Massachusetts Department of Health’s work on health disparities, created a new Office of Health Equity, and provided $1 million in grants to support community-based activities to eliminate health disparities.
Auerbach is a Distinguished Professor of Practice in Health Sciences and the Director of the Institute on Urban Health Research and Practice at Northeastern University. He joined the University in 2012.
From 2007 to 2012 he was the Massachusetts’s Commissioner of Public Health. He initiated the Mass in Motion initiative, a multi-faceted campaign to prevent obesity and promote wellness. He was a member of the team that implemented the state’s groundbreaking health care reform initiative.
Prior to his appointment as Commissioner, Auerbach had been the Executive Director of the Boston Public Health Commission, the City’s health department, for 9 years. Under his leadership, the Commission developed new initiatives on tobacco control, cancer, asthma, obesity, emergency preparedness as well as a broad-based and comprehensive campaign to reduce racial and ethnic health disparities. He began his career in public health as an administrator in the Uphams Corner Community Health Center and a manager at Boston City Hospital and the Boston University School of Medicine.
In accepting this nomination, Mr. Auerbach stated that “The fight to achieve health equity needs to be part of the DNA of public health. It is what we want when we focus on the social determinants of health and attempt to eliminate disparities. And, happily, it is increasingly a priority for public health efforts at all levels with the recognition that we can’t control costs and improve health outcomes without a concerted effort.”
CDC Director Tom Frieden, MD, MPH, congratulates John Auerbach on this honor. “Congratulations on your recognition as Health Equity Champion by our Office of Minority Health and Health Equity. CDC applauds your significant efforts on behalf of health equity at the state and local levels. Setting the health equity agenda for ASTHO is key to making the health of all people a focus of all our concerns and our programs.”
