We know health equity should be central to the work we do and incorporated into our organizations, our work with others, and ourselves, but it doesn’t always happen. This interactive training will explore common concepts and definitions related to building health equity, being culturally intelligent, key identifying complex factors that make people and communities healthy, and exploring how history and policies have helped shape what our communities are like today.
