The Health Policy Institute of Ohio is hosting a series of regional forums titled Roadmaps to Equity: Opportunities for Closing Health Gaps. The forums will be held in Columbus, Cleveland and Cincinnati, where stakeholders will learn about Ohio’s overall health status and challenges, as well as health disparities and inequities experienced by minority and other priority populations across the state. Data and information will be shared from the 2017 HPIO Health Value Dashboard and the 2016 State Health Assessment.
Attendees also will learn about actionable, evidence-informed strategies that can be implemented by local health improvement initiatives to reduce health disparities and inequities, and move Ohioans towards health equity. Each forum will also feature a facilitated panel discussion on the impact of health disparities and inequities in each region.
The Roadmaps to Equity forum series is held in partnership with the Ohio Commission on Minority Health and County Health Rankings & Roadmaps.
Forum attendance is free of charge, but registration is required. Registration begins at 12:30 p.m., with the program starting at 1p.m.
