Health Equity Resource: A Practitioner’s Guide for Advancing Health Equity and Other Resources

Thursday, December 12, 2013  
Posted by: Natalia Gromov

A Practitioner’s Guide for Advancing Health Equity: Community Strategies for Preventing Chronic Disease (Health Equity Guide) is a new tool developed by DCH to help public health practitioners address the well-documented disparities in chronic diseases. This resource offers community examples and ideas on how to maximize the effects of several policy, systems, and environmental improvement strategies with a goal to reduce health inequities and advance health equity. There are four sections in the Health Equity Guide:

· Incorporating Health Equity into Foundational Skills of Public Health

· Maximizing Tobacco-Free Living Strategies to Advance Health Equity

· Maximizing Healthy Food and Beverage Strategies to Advance Health Equity

· Maximizing Active Living Strategies to Advance Health Equity

Please share this new resource with your network of partners and collaborators!

1. Health Equity Guide Brown Bag Series – Tobacco – Free Living Strategies – Tues., Dec. 17th – 12 noon – 1 pm – Chamblee Campus, Bldg 107, Conf. Rm#1B

On Tuesday, Dec. 17th at 12 noon, the 1st of 3 health equity guide brown bag sessions will be held on the Chamblee Campus, Bldg 107, Rm#1B. The additional 2 brown bag sessions will be held in January and February 2014 (Tentative Dates) – Information is forthcoming.

The purpose of the brown bag series is to introduce the Division of Community Health to the health equity guide via providing an overview of each of the sections (i.e. Tobacco-Free Living Strategies, Health Food and Beverage Strategies, and Active Living Strategies), navigating the section, and discussing how each section can be used by different branches/units of the Division.
