To be effective, public health law and policy must advance health equity. This webinar focuses on ways to ensure that equity is identified, incorporated, and maintained at every stage of public health law and policy work, with a focus on food systems, physical activity, and commercial tobacco control. Public Health Law Center attorneys provide an overview of key terminology and theories such as the social determinants of health, inequity, and health equity, and describe ways to ensure that equity is addressed in every stage of the law and policy change process, including research, solution identification, drafting, advocacy, enforcement, and evaluation.
