Messaging Health Equity to Decision-Makers - Northwest Center for Public Health Practice

Wednesday, December 20, 2017
Noon to 1 p.m. PT

Many policies meant to improve health are written in such broad strokes that, upon implementation, historically marginalized communities don't receive the intended benefits and health inequities could increase. In the December session of Hot Topics in Practice, Jennifer Messenger Heilbronner explores strategies researched and created by Voices for Healthy Kids for messaging health equity to policy decision-makers to ensure under-resourced communities have access to new programs and funding created by a policy.

In this one-hour webinar, Jennifer will share how research identified key values among policy decision-makers and used those values to craft a case for including equitable provisions in policies that help kids thrive. She will also review tips from a new messaging guide for policy advocates that discusses how to motivate decision-makers to consider, pursue, and champion health equity language in public policy development.
