Health Equity

A Commitment to Advancing Health Equity

A Commitment to Advancing Health Equity Image

Description:

Dr. Aletha Maybank discusses the Center for Health Equity’s revitalization of a de-centralized, multi-level, “inside-outside” approach to addressing health inequities in New York City. She suggests that collaboration between city government agencies and community advocates groups may help tackle racism as well as a variety of social justice and health issues created and exacerbated by residential segregation. In a large city like New York, community involvement and partnership between existing district health center hubs with the Department of Health may help to address root causes of health equity gaps and reduce redundancy in services.

Course Objective

  • The strengths of the place-based approach as a means to achieve health equity
  • The responsibility of a public health practitioner in acknowledging and addressing the underlying causes as to why health inequalities persist
  • The importance of neighborhood health planning to advance equity
