2019 State of Health Equity at CDC Forum WD4175

2019 STATE OF HEALTH EQUITY AT CDC FORUM

Program Description

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.
