Advancing Health Equity as a Core System Value | Jan 20, 2022 @ 1pm

January 20, 2022

Health outcomes are influenced by individual behaviors as well as the context in which an individual lives, works, learns, and plays. Improving population health and achieving health equity has been identified as a core system value for Cooperative Extension to ensure that all people have a fair and just opportunity to be as healthy as they can be. 

On January 20, at 1 p.m. Eastern, Dr. LaToya O’Neal will present the new Cooperative Extension National Framework for Health Equity and Well-Being. Dr. O’Neal will also share examples of multilevel, community-engaged approaches to advance health and health equity from her Rural HEALTH program.
