Health equity means that everyone has a fair and just opportunity to be as healthy as possible (Braveman, 2017). In Wisconsin, inequities are observed across many factors, including race, place, and income. In this session, we will describe a framework for understanding health inequities and the importance of local governments engaging community members in identifying and implementing actions to promote health equity. Presented by Paula Tran Inzeo, MATCH Group Director; Jonathan Heller, Senior Health Equity Fellow; and Wajiha Akhtar, Assistant Director, University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute.
