Project Description Narrative:
Health equity means that everyone has a fair and just opportunity to be healthier. Advancing health equity and root causes of poor health are essential to improving health across Wisconsin.
Through Learning Event Support funding, the learning event will convene and support diverse leaders in setting and taking action on a common set of priorities to align and catalyze efforts to advance health equity in Wisconsin. The 2019 Healthiest State Agenda Setting Convening will support participants to build and strengthen relationships between public health leaders to support future action, reinforce shared understanding of the role of power in shaping conditions of health, review and refine health equity priorities and identify actions to take to advance those priorities, and explore options for collective action to advance the work.
