Building and Unleashing Community Power to Advance Health

May 2, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Communities experiencing the greatest health inequities often have the least power to influence the institutions, decisions, and resource allocations that significantly impact health outcomes. Health equity approaches should consider power and community leadership, especially by those most affected by inequities, in the co-creation of conditions in which people can reach their full health potential. This training situates power in a health equity framework, describes authentic community engagement and community power building practices, and provides examples of how partnerships grounded in a health equity approach can advance policy and systems changes to promote health. Participants will be introduced to community power mapping tools to help inform partnership development and strategies for building and shifting power. Click here to register
