Measuring Health Disparities Image

This interactive course focuses on some basic issues for public health practice -how to understand, define and measure health disparity. This course examines the language of health disparity to come to some common understanding of what that term means, explains key measures of health disparity and shows how to calculate them.

The course is designed to be accessible to a broad audience of practitioners across all sectors of the public health and related workforce who are concerned about the issue of health disparity. Parts III and IV are more technical; although not required, it is helpful to have a background in statistics, epidemiology, or other related sciences for ease of understanding these sections.

Five Trainings for Health Professionals to Integrate Racial Equity Into Practice
Five Trainings for Health Professionals to Integrate Racial Equity Into Practice Image
Racism is a public health issue, with significant impacts to health and well-being.
Public health and healthcare professionals know firsthand the impacts that long-standing discriminatory structures and institutionalized racism have on health outcomes. This has been particularly pronounced throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
What is the role of public health in dismantling historical barriers, embedded segregation, and legacies of structural racism in our communities? Health professionals are at the forefront of efforts to achieve health equity, but we will only be successful if we focus as individuals, teams, and organizations to address the system underlying these disparities and the structural racism of our communities.
To build skills, knowledge, and learning for health professionals, PHF has curated a set of five high quality, recent, and complementary trainings. Each of these trainings are roughly one hour and are available through the TRAIN Learning Network​:
Trainings include:
  • Achieving Health Equity – Tools for a National Campaign Against Racism
  • Health Equity and Environmental Justice 101 Training
  • Segregation Stress Syndrome: From Emmett Till to Trayvon Martin
  • Working Across Government to Advance Health and Racial Equity
  • #NYCHealthEquity – Advancing Racial and Social Justice

Workshop: Seeking Health Equity: Understanding and Taking Action on the Root Causes of Health Disparities
Workshop: Seeking Health Equity: Understanding and Taking Action on the Root Causes of Health Disparities Image

Overview:

This is an all-day, in-person, skills-based workshop. A limited number of these classes are held at local, state and tribal health departments in Region IV (AL, FL, GA, KY, MS, NC, SC, TN).

Research suggests that a multitude of social and environmental factors such as education level, neighborhood of residence, and socioeconomic status are all strong predictors of a person’s health outcomes. Further, research suggests that a person’s race, sex, gender, and or sexual orientation can make them targets of discrimination and violence. Such experiences can greatly impact a person’s stress levels, their relationship with medical professionals, and lead to bias in health research.

This workshop is designed to help public health professionals better understand these determinants of health so that they may best serve their communities. Participants will be asked to reflect honestly upon their workplace practices focusing on how such practices may potentially exacerbate health inequity. Participants will further be asked to work with the trainer to identify areas for growth within their work environments.

How healthy we are when we are born, how likely we are to get sick as we age, and how long we can expect to live are all determined to a surprising extent by our place in society.

Strategies to Advance Health Equity: Understanding and Influencing Corporate Practices of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Food and Beverage Industries to Promote Health
Strategies to Advance Health Equity: Understanding and Influencing Corporate Practices of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Food and Beverage Industries to Promote Health Image

Tobacco and alcohol use and the consumption of unhealthy foods and beverages are all major causes of preventable deaths and disease in the United States and around the world. While individuals are responsible for the use and consumption of these substances, this training emphasizes how public health can take a new approach to this issue: by changing the ways that the tobacco, alcohol, and food industries currently promote their products and make a profit at the expense of community health. This training details tobacco, alcohol, and food corporate strategies that can have harmful affects on population health and also provides timely and relevant examples of health departments that have used research, advocacy, and education to tackle these industry tactics and advance a public health agenda.

There are 5 major sections of the module: Introduction, Four Corporate Strategies that Boost Profit- and Harm Health, How can we take on these harmful practices – and promote health, three different Case Studies, and What Else Can We Do?.

Learners can expect reflection exercises that give them the opportunity to apply knowledge gained to their work setting. Learners may benefit from participating in the training with a colleague and reflecting on questions and activities together.

Strategies to Advance Health Equity: How Health Departments Can Promote Living Wages
Strategies to Advance Health Equity: How Health Departments Can Promote Living Wages Image

The social determinants of health, or the structures and economic systems that shape patterns of wellness and illness, can influence health issues like obesity and teen pregnancy. Upstream factors that influence health are broad, deeply entrenched in our society, and can appear daunting to change. While public health often focuses on individual-level health behaviors, this approach requires a high level of effort from the targeted individual and has little influence on widespread population health.

Health departments are increasingly moving upstream to tackle the core issues that affect the communities they serve, such as income. This module details how raising the minimum wage is a public health issue and provides a case study of one health department that used research, communication, and advocacy to influence low wages.

Learners can expect clear, easy to follow navigation, and many opportunities for reflection in this case study.
