Inaugural Northeast Health Equity Summit
June 28, 2018, Hartford, CT

Realizing Health Equity: Walking the Talk

Join leaders in health equity, community health workers, health advocates, legislators and educators as we take a deeper dive into understanding the role of social determinants of health and their impact on health equity, inequities and disparities.

You’ll have an opportunity to network with experts and discovers ways to create more effective policies, programs and procedures that ensure equitable health and wellness outcomes in all populations – with a focus on populations experiencing the greatest burden of both cardiovascular and cerebrovascular-related diseases. Presenters will showcase best practice initiatives, and participants can explore opportunities to develop coalitions and partnerships focused on collective impact.
