The Structural Inequities Affecting Our Prevention Practice

Webinar Overview and Objectives

Cultural competency, health disparities, and health equity are familiar terms to prevention professionals. Yet we still struggle to define these terms or understand the impact of diversity, equity, and inclusion on our every prevention practice. In this virtual learning experience, we will explore the art of prevention planning and how a focus on health equity allows us to direct their prevention strategies toward the most vulnerable populations in the communities we serve. In doing this, we contribute to reducing health disparities and support initiatives that create community and societal change. Come prepared to critically think about how our work contributes to improving health equity across the state.

After this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Define foundational terms related to health equity
  • Explain how an equity lens can be applied to prevention planning
  • Describe at least one action step for immediate implementation based on the lessons learned in the session.


At the conclusion of the webinar, PFS Grantees will have the opportunity to schedule individual consultations with the presenter to discuss strategies to improve health equity in their unique communities and states.
