Advancing Health Equity Through Resistance: A State of the Union on Threats and Opportunities

Event Description

This National Health Equity Grand Rounds event will serve as a proverbial State of the Union for health justice work in the United States. Nationally renowned speakers including public health leaders, healthcare professionals, policy experts and organizers with deep experience in community-based health justice work will gather to share their perspectives on where we collectively stand in our efforts to advance public health for all people living in the United States. They’ll delve into successful efforts to advance health equity, discuss the coordinated efforts to dismantle this work in various parts of the country, and identify strategies to counter resistance while building a stronger multiracial democracy equipped to support health for every individual and community.
