Health equity front and center at APHA

When JHA first started presenting at American Public Health Association (APHA) meetings several years ago, we had to explain the social determinants of health.  Things are changing.  This year, the term health equity was front and center in multiple panels and discussions.  (JHA uses Margaret Whitehead’s 1992 health inequity definition: Differences in health which are not only unnecessary and avoidable but, in addition are considered unfair and unjust).  JHA and colleagues gave two presentations this year at APHA that worked on principles of health equity:

A Three Pronged Collaborative Approach to Improving Health in an Environmental Justice Community  and

Health Impact Assessment for Seattle’s Duwamish River
Superfund Cleanup Plan
