11th Annual Health Equity Summit

Shifting and Sharing Power: Community Engagement for Reducing Health Inequities

We emphasized that community engagement is an important step towards understanding the unique circumstances facing populations living with health inequities. This was especially true when considering these communities’ opportunities and barriers to achieving health. Having authentic and ongoing relationships with communities that experience marginalization – beyond one-time engagement events or client satisfaction – requires eliminating processes and practices that make decisions for those communities without their direct and meaningful involvement.

The summit was held virtually through Zoom on Thursday, July 14, 2022 at 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM.
