Healthy Communities: Promoting Wellness & Achieving Health and Mental Health Equity
REGISTER NOW! EVENTBRITE
WHY HEALTH EQUITY MATTERS
Health equity is achieved when everyone has the opportunity to live a healthier life, no matter who we are, where we live, or how much money we make. And while we can’t currently ensure that everyone will be healthy, we can change the physical conditions in which people live, learn, work and play, one community at a time. These conditions are called the Social Determinants of Health and by improving these conditions we can ensure that everyone has the opportunity to achieve their full potential and improve their quality of life.
Please join us as we change the conversation to look at health equity through a Social Determinants of Health lens.
