Description

GROWING POLICY SOLUTIONS FOR IMPROVED COMMUNITY HEALTH is the first session in ChangeLab Solutions’ six-part virtual engagement series, Uprooting the Structural Drivers of Health Inequity.

In this session, we will kick off the series with a discussion of how organizations and advocates are addressing inequity in their efforts to improve health outcomes, bringing together three leaders in public health and health equity to discuss these questions:

· What are the structural drivers of health inequity?

· How are different sectors — including community-based organizations, government, and funders — addressing these drivers to advance structural solutions?

· How are leaders re-imagining their approaches in the context of the pandemic, economic crisis, and a growing movement for racial justice?

Speakers:

· Oxiris Barbot, MD, adjunct assistant professor at Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health and senior fellow for public health and social justice at The JPB Foundation

· Wendoly Marte, director of economic justice at Community Change

· Cara James, PhD, president and CEO at Grantmakers in Health

· Sarah de Guia, JD, CEO at ChangeLab Solutions (Moderator)
