The Roundtable on the Promotion of Health Equity and the Elimination of Health Disparities will hold a workshop on Monday, November 7, in Detroit, MI. The purpose of this workshop is to focus on the newly evolving equity model as a strategy for moving forward in improving health outcomes for people of color – and all people - in the U.S. What are the “lessons learned” about the equity model of addressing health disparities from those sectors that have embraced the equity model?

To address these issues, we will hear from:

  • Several of the major players in the philanthropic sector who are focusing their grant making efforts on structural racism and addressing the social determinants of health from the perspective of an equity model.
  • Evaluation experts who consider what constitutes “evidence” in favor of a successful model, and how our perspective on evaluation data is changing to include a broader focus on practice evidence as well as scientific evidence.
  • Public health departments across the nation are including novel approaches to addressing health equity in their strategic plans. They are another important set of voices to learn from about the equity model.
