A Health in All Policies approach serves all residents of a community by promoting fairness and opportunity, and eliminating inequities in decision making. Elected leaders and staff are guided by a common mission and vision that exemplify fair and just guiding principles as foundational components. The Public Health Law Center and Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota's Center for Prevention have been working together to advance understanding and use of this type of policy. Presenters will share progress and case studies.
