Health Equity: We All Have a Role to Play
Course Format: Video

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that the average U.S. life expectancy is 77 years. However, life expectancy estimates show racial and ethnic disparities. This disturbing reality will remain unchanged without the advancement of health equity—or fair and just opportunities to attain the highest level of health care possible, which requires the removal of barriers such as poverty, discrimination, and their consequences. Define health equity as well as cultural and linguistic competence. Discover how to create environments that value inclusion and health equity. Understand the social determinants of health and their impact on health equity, and differentiate between health equity and health disparities.
