In this 30-minute webinar, we will introduce you to What Works for Health's features, demonstrate how to identify strategies that align with your community priorities and address health disparities. We'll also share how health departments are using WWFH to support their strategic planning.
Community Health Workers (CHWs) are taking a larger role in patient-centered care and community health. Yet, questions remain around the scope of their work, licensure requirements, and available funding sources to build a capable workforce. In this webinar, we will clarify their work and explore their role in advancing equity.
In this final webinar of the Advancing Racial Equity series, we will examine the complexity of Asian American and Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islanders as a group and better understand the need to break down data and understand the multiple ethnicities within the group to achieve health and racial equity.
Narratives around race can give rise to policies and systems that exacerbate and reproduce inequities. The result can create stark differences by race in how well and how long people live. Just what are narratives? How are they created? Why is it important to transform them? We will explore these questions and more during this webinar.

In the midst of the twin pandemics of COVID-19 and systemic racism, people are increasingly engaging in conversations around racial equity. To achieve racial equity in access, opportunities, and power, communities across the country are having intentional and honest dialogue around needed change in policies, practices, and procedures.
Within every community, there are significant differences in peoples’ health and their opportunities to live long and healthy lives. Policy changes can be key to both transforming health in a community and helping to eliminate inequities. But when policies aren’t created or enforced with equity in mind, they may perpetuate these disparities – or even amplify them.
