2019 State of Health Equity at CDC Forum WD4175 - Renewal
This forum presents a social and public health science foundation for applying a health equity lens to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s continuous work in data and measurement, program implementation, policies, and in creating an infrastructure suited to support achieving health equity in public health practice. The goal of this activity is to apply a health equity lens to public health emergency preparedness, response and recovery activities through deliberate communications and interdisciplinary partnerships. Top experts in the field will explain and illustrate through programmatic examples and scientific data, how disparities in preparedness and response to public health emergencies can be reduced and health equity advanced.
At the conclusion of the session, the participant will be able to:
- Describe how existing health disparities and social and economic conditions may put populations at increased vulnerability during a public health emergency.
- Describe at least two barriers to addressing disparities and vulnerabilities in public health emergencies.
- Describe at least two ways in which at-risk/vulnerable populations have successfully addressed previous public health emergencies.
- Discuss two ways communities are reducing social, economic, and health disparities to address the needs of at-risk/vulnerable populations in public health emergencies.
- Identify two approaches by interdisciplinary teams that may be effective in advancing equity in community resilience for public health emergencies.
