Health Equity Making the Economic Case for Health Equity: State and Tribal Solutions Webinar.

Health equity is an economic issue as well as a social justice issue. Significant inequities and disparities exist between different racial/ethnic groups, socioeconomic classes, geographical location, and in social determinants of health such as poverty, education, inadequate housing, and unsafe working conditions. The burden of health inequities constitutes a huge financial and social cost to our nation in terms of the quantity and quality of life. Join ASTHO's webinar on June 22, 2012 for a thoughtful discussion on this topic.
