Note: This workshop has limited capacity. If you are unable to enroll, the course might be full. This is an online, interactive workshop on November 4, 2021 from 8:45am-12pm ET. Participants will use Zoom to join with both video and audio. This workshop is sponsored by The Region IV Public Health Training Center. Training Overview 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, violence and inadequate health care. 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. The workshop will rely on the Human Impact Partners recommendations and the National Standard for Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services. Based on these documents and the existing research, workshop participants will explore possibilities for improving their programs’ print and digital media, community assessments, and internal operations to best meet the cultural needs of the communities they serve. Participants will leave this workshop better equipped to carry out the health equity goals of their health departments.   About the Trainer Katie L.
