Making the Economic Case for Health Equity:  State and Tribal Solutions.  
Friday, June 22, 2012
2:00 - 3:30 p.m. EST

Please join ASTHO for an in-depth discussion of strategies used for adoption and implementation of policies and approaches that address health equity. The webinar will draw on promising practices from federal, state health agencies, tribal entities, and other community partners.

Among the speakers will be the SHOs from MT and MA, Anna Whiting Sorrell and John Auerbach, with the OK SHO, Terry Cline, moderating.

Health equity is an economic issue as well as a social justice issue. Significant inequities and disparities exist between different racial/ethnic groups, socioeconomic classes, geographical location, and in social determinants of health such as poverty, education, inadequate housing, and unsafe working conditions. The burden of health inequities constitutes a huge financial and social cost to our nation in terms of the quantity and quality of life.
