Team Up, Take Action: A Conference on Partnering for Health Equity

Join colleagues from New Hampshire and Vermont for the third year of Team Up Take Action, a conference aimed at cultivating shared learning among public health, health care, and social service sector professionals in order to advance health equity. Health equity is about removing obstacles to health such as discrimination and inadequate access to employment, fair pay, quality education and housing, safe environments and health care.  The conference was developed in response to a growing recognition that to truly build health equity an interdisciplinary, coordinated, cross-sector approach is necessary. Team Up Take Action convenes public health, healthcare, and human and social service professionals to build bridges, understand each other’s perspectives and learn best practices in cross-sector partnership and teamwork.
