WEBINAR: Implementing Model Practices in Your Community: Health Equity and Access to Healthy Foods Through Community Engagement Efforts

 1:00 PM ET - 2:00 PM ET


Join us for the second webinar in the three-part Implementing Model Practices in Your Community series to learn more about innovative approaches to community engagement that lead to equity and access to healthy food. The Florida Department of Health in Manatee County will discuss their efforts to implement community-driven healthy food access in underserved communities.  Their process provides a model for successful collaboration between cross-county sectors and a framework to applying multi-tiered community engagement results for program implementation. The Kansas City Health Department will discuss how strengthening a partnership between public health and community organizers led to cultivating a culture of health equity. Rather than working in the same areas but in silos, public health and a well-known community organizing group now work more efficiently and in tandem due to clearly defined mutual objectives.
