Workshop A5: Building Healthier Connected Communities Through Health Equity

Virginia Department of Health – Office of Equity

Health equity means that everyone has a fair opportunity to live a long, healthy life. Faith-based health promotion can improve attention to address health disparities in local congregations to close the disparity gap.

This workshop will look at building local community faith-based members and leaders to improve health and health equity and engaging faith-based communities and organizations from a variety of different sectors as partners in improving community health.
