The narratives that currently dominate public discussions and policy development center on health care and individual behavior. This prevents decision makers from recognizing the role played by policies that support education, economic opportunity, and neighborhood conditions. The Healthy Minnesota Partnership is doing ground-breaking work to change the public conversation about health, by drawing attention to the diverse public and private policies that create and improve health. Gain new skills for advancing health equity by pairing powerful public narratives with policy.
