Recommended pre-webinar reading: Freudenberg, N., Franzosa, E, Chisholm, J., Libman, K. (2015). New approaches for moving upstream: How state and local health departments can transform practice to reduce health inequalities. Health Education & Behavior 42(IS), 46S-56S
Reflection Questions: Why should public health practitioners take on more upstream causes of ill health in order to better reduce inequalities in health? How can public health professionals in state and local health departments move upstream without “falling in the river,” i.e., without putting their jobs or the communities they serve at risk? How can public health professionals ally with the social movements of today to advance the efforts for health equity?
