The National Academies report Communities in Action: Pathways to Health Equity concluded that health equity is crucial and health inequity is costly. Communities across the country are deploying action strategies to reduce health inequities. However, it can be challenging to effectively communicate and message the value of health equity and ongoing efforts to diverse stakeholders.
Voices for Healthy Kidsa joint initiative of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the American Heart Association, developed a messaging guide that provides custom-built messages and insights for policy advocates to further the advancement of health equity. This guide provides an overview of shared values and the need to harness these values in mobilizing decision makers to take action.
Join the NAM for a webinar where experts provide research-based tips and techniques for advancing health equity in public policy. A case study will illustrate how value-based messaging has proven effective in creating common ground while unifying communities and decision makers to create needed change. A community representative from WE ACT for Environmental Justice in Harlem, NY will provide reactions to the webinar presentations.
