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:
Health Equity into Foundational Skills of Public Health
Tobacco-Free Living Strategies to Advance Health Equity
Healthy Food and Beverage Strategies to Advance Health Equity
Active Living Strategies to Advance Health Equity
Please share this new resource with your network of
partners and collaborators!
