On Wednesday, March 24, 2016, HRiA's Mo Barbosa led the second session of the Community Health Training Institute's three-part Health Equity Training Series. 81 people participated in the 90-min webinar, entitled, Engaging and Empowering Priority Communities: Health Equity in Action.
Thanks to support from MA DPH and feedback from coalitions, in June 2015, the Community Health Training Institute created a tool that makes it easy to find coalitions working towards healthier communities in Massachusetts.
The RWJF 2016 County Health Rankings are out! Coalitions and community health stakeholders across the state will find useful information and actions in the interactive report. MA DPH encourages you to share this information with others in your community and to use these data and other data sources in community health assessment and planning.
This March, over 75 members of coalitions and others have joined us for our Health Equity Training Series -- and the conversation continues. On May 21 our new webinar, Health Equity in Action: Taking the Next Steps, will follow up by going deeper into the practical application of equity practices.
