ABOUT THE MEETING
Please join us at the Office of Health Equity Advisory Committee Quarterly Meeting on May 15th, 2019.
The Office of Health Equity Advisory Committee has been working on it’s strategic plan for 2020- 2025. The first phase of the plan included facilitated discussions with Office of Health Equity staff to identify priority topic areas that the Advisory Committee would focus on in the coming years in partnership with the three units in the Office of Health Equity.
As a follow up to these sessions and ensure that we are incorporating our communities voices, the Advisory Comittee will be hosting it’s remaining three meetings of 2019 as Community Listening sessions focusing on areas with high burden of health ineqituties in Central, Southern, and Northern California.
This will be an opportunity to hear about issues that are impacting health equity and listen to best and promising practices that our communities have been engaging in to address health equity. Each meeting will have a set of topics that will be addressed which will include community selected issues. The meetings will also be a opportunity for recruiting new Advisory Committee members as we have several vacancies coming up this fall that will need to be filled.
The general agenda for the May 15th meeting will cover the topics of Environmental Justice, Housing, Immigration, and will be as follows:
9:00-1:00 Community Presentations and Listening Forum
1:00-1:30 Lunch Break
1:30-3:00 Advisory Committee Business Items
Registration is free!
All sessions are open to the public and a detailed agenda and meeting materials will be posted on the Office of Health Equity Advisory Committee website by May 3rd, 2019.
