The Role of Local Health Departments in Addressing Health Inequity
What do we mean when we talk about health equity and health disparities? What are local health departments doing to address health inequity? What are the challenges and barriers to initiating and sustaining health equity efforts at the local level? Presenters conducted key informant interviews with local public health directors and local public health staff throughout Minnesota, to better understand the readiness, capacity, and current efforts of local health departments to address health inequities.
