Webinar: Why health equity matters in prevention

A focus on health equity allows communities to direct their prevention strategies towards the most vulnerable populations in the region they serve. In doing this, we contribute to the reduction in health disparities and support initiatives that create community and societal change. Part 2 of this series will feature a panel presentation of experts discussing how and why the system of inequity exists. Panelists will share the fundamental causes of health disparities and recommendations to the field on responding to health disparities in substance misuse prevention.

Community and state-level substance misuse prevention practitioners, tribes, allied health partners and community members located in the Pacific Southwest (HHS Region 9) states and jurisdictions of American Samoa, Arizona, California, Commonwealth of Northern Mariana Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Guam, Hawaii, Nevada, Republic of Marshall Islands, and Republic of Palau.

Participants will receive a certificate of attendance for 1.5 hours of continuing education. 

Date and Time:
