Description

Health equity means everyone has a fair shot at living the healthiest life possible, and one of the first steps in ensuring that everyone has a fair shot is working with community partners to identify and address health disparities. A community-driven health equity action plan is intended to create a roadmap for communities to take action on a health equity agenda that addresses priorities in their community. This training will examine how communities can identify and prioritize health disparities and address the social determinants of health, facilitate a community change process through authentic community engagement, and collect and analyze data on health disparities to identify key issues to inform a health equity action plan.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Identify key issues to analyze and address in planning to eliminate health disparities
  • Describe the social determinants of health and ways they could address them through problem gambling prevention efforts
  • Identify ways they can build authentic partnerships in the community to facilitate a community change process
  • Collect and analyze data on health disparities to inform and prioritize key issues in the community to address in a health equity action plan
