Empowering Community Members to Advance Health Equity: Building Capacity through Innovative Training
Start Date: August 20, 2014
End Date: August 20, 2014
Wednesday, August 20, 2014 3:00 PM -- 4:00 PM EDT
(National Partnership for Action to End Health Disparities)
Efforts to address health disparities the past two decades have yielded a variety of preventive and remedial approaches ranging from population- and individual- focused interventions for specific issues to broad-ranging policy and programmatic changes. As the promotion of health equity takes root as a priority in public policy and public health, the community of early adopters/practitioners need to explore our prior investments to identify promising practices for building capacity in communities.
Participants will learn about two innovative approaches that are focused on building capacity to address health inequities. The DELTA (Developing Equity Leadership Through Training and Action) program, is a comprehensive health equity and inclusion leadership program that provides training, coaching and consultation to key health, community and policy leaders in Oregon. The Idaho Refugee Community Health Advisor program applies a culturally specific and trauma informed approach to increase access to health systems by training refugee community members as health navigators.
