Register here now!

Description:
April is Minority Health Month! NACDD is committed to advancing health by raising awareness about health disparities that affect racial and ethnic minorities living in priority populations. This month’s webinar will focus on root causes associated with health disparities and social justice. Health begins where we live, learn, work, worship, and play.  Social justice affects the way people live, impacts their risks for illness, and their chances of premature death. Can public health influence the unequal structuring of life conditions? During this webinar, our featured speaker, Richard Hofrichter, the Senior Director of Health Equity at the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO), will discuss how chronic disease prevention and health promotion practitioners can create opportunities for building a public narrative about the root causes of health disparities. Additionally, Michigan and Massachusetts chronic disease programs will provide examples of how they are addressing some of these root causes in their states. The webinar will conclude with a short update about the NACDD Health Equity Council’s Institutional Equity Tool Project.

Intended Audience:
Chronic Disease and Health Promotion Directors
Chronic Disease Practitioner Network
All General Members who work in state health departments

Join us for this exciting webinar on April 26, 2018 from 3:00-4:00 PM ET.
