About this Event

Awards Ceremony & Dinner Reception

The Advancing Health Equity Awards are designed to recognize and support those innovative local public health departments that are examining the health impacts of policies in other sectors, working with residents and decision makers to influence those policies, and supporting efforts to involve residents in local decision-making. The awards showcase and reward public health department practices that can inform future work and help advance a new standard of health equity practice in local health departments throughout California and beyond.

Ceremony attendees from California local health departments are also invited to attend the accompany Health Equity Workshop Dec. 3rd & 4th (see more information below). Registration form for the ceremony includes the option to also register for the workshop.

Workshop

The Advancing Health Equity Workshop is designed for those public health practitioners who believe in changing the status quo, in thinking differently and in fundamentally transforming how we approach health creation in this country. The workshop creates a space for people from local health departments across the state to gather and learn from, support, and inspire each other in doing deep, impactful and lasting health equity work. It is also a learning space to share strategies and ideas for adopting, implementing, leveraging and deepening essential practices that can build community voice and power to advance health.
