What’s health equity got to do with it? This Web conference will provide a space for a closer look at leveraging sexual and domestic violence prevention work to promote health equity. Based in the framework presented in the Centers for Disease Control’s recent publication, A Practitioner’s Guide for Advancing Health Equity: Community Strategies for Preventing Chronic Disease, this Web conference will delve into disproportionate outcomes based on race, class, sexual orientation, and ability within the context of sexual and domestic violence. Guests will explore opportunities to better address equity issues and support health equity as a part of prevention initiatives.
