Webinar Series: Intentionally Integrating Equity into SDOH Interventions – Part 1: Equity’s Role in SDOH Interventions – Implementation @ Webinar
Apr 7 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Part 1: Four health equity champions will discuss equity’s role in the design and implementation process of SDOH interventions.

About this Event

Addressing SDOH or social risks alone cannot be conflated with tackling inequity – and doing so can put interventions at risk of unintentionally perpetuating disparities. In this three-part webinar series, health equity champions from across the country will share their experiences integrating equity into SDOH interventions

In this interactive webinar of the series, four health equity champions will discuss equity’s role in the design and implementation process of SDOH interventions with a lens towards equity-centered human design. Panelists will highlight the tactical approaches and strategies of integrating equity that have led to results/better outcomes in their communities, including:

  • Ensuring screening efforts display cultural humility and align with the community;
  • Designing SDOH interventions with the most marginalized communities in mind;
  • Understanding the role SDOH interventions have in addressing implicit or explicit discrimination perpetuated by the health system.

Panelists and attendees will also have the opportunity to discuss ways equity can be further advanced by improving upon or developing new SDOH interventions. We encourage those who are interested in the intersection of SDOH and health equity work to attend, ask questions and share their experiences.

Panelists:

  • Leticia Reyes-Nash – Director of the Office of Programmatic Services and Innovation, Cook County Health
  • Moraya Moini – Director of Programs, Los Angeles County Department of Health Services, Women’s Health Programs and Innovation
  • Nimisha Patel – Associate Vice President of Management Services, Duke Health | Private Diagnostic Clinic, PLLC
  • Tigee Hill – National Director of Partnerships and Initiatives, Health Leads

Moderator:

  • Artair Rogers, Manager West Coast Partnerships, Health Leads

Changing the Conversation about Mental Health – How Do We Come Back to the New Normal?

This session will discuss what coming back to the “New Normal” looks like for college students’ as they return to their respective campuses.
