Join CDC’s Office of Health Equity (OHE)  and our partners on Thursday, March 28th 2-3:15pm ET to learn about using health equity science and data for action. Health equity science is needed in order to achieve health equity, which is when everyone has a fair and just opportunity to attain their highest level of health. Equitable data practices and health equity science principles must be applied to ensure full and accurate representation of marginalized populations and ensure the development and implementation of effective and equitable public health practices to address health disparities.

OHE’s Associate Director for Science will share information about the Principles of Health Equity Science for Public Health Action.

Additional presenters include subject matter experts from:

  • CDC’s Office of Public Health Data, Surveillance, and Technology
  • Johns Hopkins University Disability Health Research Center
  • Papa Ola Lōkahi.

At the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  1. Provide a definition of health equity science.
  2. List at least three practical applications of the Principles of Health Equity Science for Public Health Action.
  3. Name at least one way CDC’s work in data modernization applies health equity science principles.
  4. Explain the importance of equitable data practices for at least two different population demographics.
