A commonly asked question across states is “What strategic steps can we take to advance health equity at our health department?” In response to this need in the field the MCH Navigator in collaboration with the National MCH Workforce Development Center created this learning opportunity to assist MCH professionals in answering that question. Originally a full presentation focused on health equity conducted by the National MCH Workforce Development Center, we have separated it into multiple sections for easier access and the ability for learners to quickly locate specific sections of interest.
This resource is formatted to include the following sections: an introduction, 10 individual strategies to achieve health equity, a presentation by Nevillene White of the New York State Department of Health which provides success stories applying health equity strategies in the field, and a short wrap up with additional resources provided.
