June 13th - Advancing Health Equity in Minnesota Report

A post-conference event is being planned to mark the ten-year anniversary of the release of the Minnesota Department of Health’s groundbreaking 2014 “Advancing Health Equity in Minnesota: Report to the Legislature.” This report was unprecedented in the history of public health in Minnesota. It made it clear that structural racism was one of the impeding issues to advancing health equity in Minnesota and provided recommendations for moving forward in a positive direction.
