12/1 12 - 1 PM CDT Upcoming Webinar: "Advocating for Single Payer Health Reform"

November 17, 2021 4:16 PM | Anonymous

MN SOPHE members have identified health equity as a key advocacy priority. In order to achieve health equity, all of the social determinants of health must be considered: education, economic stability, health care access, social contexts and local environment factors. With regards to health care access, there’s a critical need in the United States to restructure the health care system. The current system has resulted in economic, racial and location-related disparities in care and coverage. Even among individuals with insurance, at least 25% are struggling to afford health care costs. As an organization with a mission to provide leadership to the profession of health education and health promotion-and to promote our communities’ health, we believe our members should be informed about options to rethink our health care system and learn about ways to advocacy for it’s restructure.

This session is intended for public health and healthcare professionals who are interested in learning more about the shortcomings of the current US health care system, the features of a single payer health system relative to achieving health care efficiency and equity.  Attendees will gain a deeper understanding of the public health implications of health care reform and learn ways to advocate for health care reform.
