Celebrate What's Right -
Health equity means that everyone has a fair and just opportunity to be healthy. This requires removing obstacles to health such as poverty, discrimination, and their consequences, including powerlessness and lack of access to good jobs with fair pay, quality education and housing, safe environments, and healthcare. Creating a healthy community for all requires collectively building on our capacity to improve the trajectory of our overall health. During the panel discussion, we'll discuss the importance of health equity, the building blocks and key players in raising our overall level of community health, and how we can work together to ensure Memphis is successful in our efforts.
