Aligning Perspectives to Eliminate Health Inequities
UIC School of Public Health - MidAmerica Public Health Training Center (MAPHTC)
The Center for Faith and Community Health Transformation
Why Come to the Training?
This series brings together faith and public health approaches to guide the vision of community health transformation. Practitioners will learn how to identify and utilize the unique assets that both disciplines use to eliminate the root causes of health inequities - the preventable and unjust differences in health status based on the social conditions in which people live.
What will be covered?
Teams will explore topics that are foundational to developing more coordinated faith and public heath partnerships that address the root causes of health inequities. Teams will work together during the class and outside the class to develop a collaborative strategy around their topic of mutual interest.
How will it be structured?
The Institute is structured as a series of seven full-day workshops for group learning. Each workshop in the series is separated by two to four weeks allowing time for individual reflection and team action. As a driver for both reflection and action, each session will have homework related to that week's theme to follow-up on before the next session.
