2-Part Webinar Series

Why Health Equity Matters in Prevention - Part 1

 

Webinar Series Overview

Cultural competency, health disparities, and health equity are familiar terms to prevention professionals. A focus on health equity allows communities to direct their prevention strategies towards the most vulnerable populations in the region they serve. In doing this, we contribute to the reduction in health disparities and support initiatives that create community and societal change. Part I of this two-part series will begin to explore why health equity matters in prevention, and uncover how culture and personal bias influence substance misuse prevention work. By the end of this webinar participants will be able to:

•    Describe the connection between prevention ethics and health equity;
•    Define the foundational terminology associated with understanding behavioral health disparities;
•    Explore how culture and personal bias influence substance misuse prevention work.
