Promoting Health Equity: Train the Trainer Workshop
This 2015 Summer Institute course is delivered in a “train the trainer” style so participants can more readily take the material back to their organization and implement new ideas with staff. The curriculum uses Just Health Action’s framework for promoting and implementing health equity in our communities.
Instructors will provide an overview of health equity terminology and concepts and will model tried and true interactive exercises used with small and large groups and with diverse audiences. Participants will use current examples from their own work to provide a context for applying these ideas and skills. Participants will also explore case studies for how these approaches were applied in organizational and community contexts.
The course will review community tools for addressing issues that produce inequities, including racism, gun violence, air pollution, food security, and youth employment. Tools include digital storytelling, photovoice, health impact assessment, community based participatory research, health equity impact reviews, and more. We will work in small groups to determine which tools work best in specific situations.
Participants will receive a manual with Just Health Action’s most popular exercises including: “What makes a community healthy?,” “What is health equity?,” “Racism and the Gardener’s Tale,” “Causes of the Causes,” and “Solutions to the Causes.”
