Minnesota’s Health Disparities Roundtable to Discuss How to Create Safe and Healthy Communities for Everyone

The University of Minnesota School of Public Health presents the Health Disparities Roundtable “Building Safe and Healthy Communities for All”

Friday, April 7, 2017
9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

Addressing the health and safety issues of communities across the country can be seen as both a concern and an opportunity. Current efforts recognize the importance of collaborative, cross-sector decision-making and strategic policies, practices, and programs that will benefit all populations, but how do we make this a reality? This event will address the challenges in reducing disparities, provide insight on what the words “healthy” and “safe” mean for different communities, and discuss strategies and best practices that assure conditions for optimal health and safety for all people.

9:00 – 9:30 a.m. – Check-in and light breakfast / Poster session
