Health equity rises to the top of a number of public health discussions and initiatives. However, being honest and effectve in advancing health equity means navigating some difficult terrain: issues of structural racism, the distribution of resources, power dynamics, local politics, participatory decision-making, and more. This session will begin with a brief overview of the tensions identified in the 2014 Minnesota Dept. of Health report: Advancing Health Equity Report to the Legislature, followed by a panel discussing ways to navigate these and similar tensions.

Presenters: Dorothy Bliss, Donna Isham, Jeannette Raymond, Minnesota Dept. of Health; Maria Regan Gonzalez, Bloomington Public Health; Travis Wojciechowski, Mille Lacs County Community Health
