Innovative Funding Approaches to Promote Health Equity


Innovative Funding Approaches to Promote Health Equity
This is the second installment of Trust for America’s Health's 4-part web forum series:Taking Action to Promote Health Equity—Using the Lessons from Cutting-Edge Practices to Improve Health and Well Being.

Public health organizations are often frustrated by the lack of specialized funding to promote equity. Categorical funding by disease may restrict the types of interventions needed to tackle the complex causes of health disparities. Please join us for this Dialogue4Health web forum, which will feature place-based initiatives that are leveraging diverse funding, assets, and commitments of multiple sectors in meaningful ways to advance health equity. Included in the session will be information on the successful Health Equity Zones in Rhode Island, which has managed the seemingly impossible task of converting categorical funding into community-driven equity work.
 
Registration is free and closed captioning is available to all attendees. This event is recommended for anyone working in public health, advocacy, community-based systems, education, housing, hunger, insurers, and local and state health officials.
