The intersection between Health Equity and Community Development are at the forefront of conversations in many CDCs today. This introductory training will give you the chance to explore the connections among health disparities, housing, and other structures that have been defined by racist policies and practices.

This training is geared toward community development professionals, planners, and housing advocates, with little or no formal training in health equity or public health. You may be interested in attending if you:

·    Are curious about how to incorporate a health equity lens into your work

·    Would like to think critically about the connections between community development, racial equity, and health outcomes

·    Want to learn more about existing partnerships between CDCs and health care institutions
