Now, more than ever, as many places look toward reopening, we need to acknowledge how deeply health and equity are intertwined in our society, and ask ourselves as we go forward: how can we work toward a more inclusive and equitable recovery for all?

To help answer this question, County Health Rankings is introducing a new webinar series, Health Equity and Social Solidarity in the Time of Pandemic: Strategies for COVID-19 Response and Recovery. This series will highlight the challenges communities are facing as they respond to COVID-19 and its impacts, and serve as an opportunity for community leaders across the nation to learn from lead researchers, policymakers and each other.

Kansas Leadership Center Journal Talk: The Price of Inequality: How Should Communities Deal with the Disparities Revealed by COVID-19?

Tuesday, July 28 | 6:00-7:00 PM 

Register here. 

Join us July 28 for the virtual release of the KLC Journal magazine’s Summer edition with a focus on the kind of leadership needed to address the racial and ethnic health disparities brought to light during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The latest Journal will feature the story of Brandon McCray, a beloved preacher and gospel musician from Wyandotte County, who died in a hospital this spring as his family looked on via Zoom. He is one of more than 60 Black Kansans to lose their lives to COVID-19 in the pandemic, which has disproportionately hurt people of color and claimed Black lives in Kansas at a rate more than four times that of white Kansans. The story of his life and death helps illustrate a small part of what’s been lost and how the problem of health inequities runs so much deeper than a virus.

The $10 admission cost for the event includes an advance discussion copy of the story and a printed version of The Journal’s Summer 2020 edition.

At NACCHO, we value the safety and well-being of our members and conference attendees, which is why we’ve converted NACCHO 360: Raising the Reach of Public Health into a fully virtual experience. This innovative virtual convening aims to break down silos by connecting our traditional NACCHO Annual conference with PHIITS: Public Health Informatics, Information Technology, and Surveillance, a reimagined Public Health Informatics (PHI) Conference that goes beyond informatics to also explore local health department information technology infrastructure and public health surveillance.

From July 7–9, conference participants can virtually engage with exhibitors, colleagues from across the globe, and presenters, who will discuss a wide range of topics, including equity and social justice, information technology infrastructure, workforce capacity, public health surveillance in times of COVID-19, and much more.

The NACCHO 360 virtual conference will offer:

  • Over 150 sharing sessions;
  • Sixty interactive posters;
  • Live plenariestown halls, and workshops featuring discussions involving health equity, COVID-19, future of public health, leadership in turbulent times, the power of data, and more;
  • Interoperability demonstrations illustrating how health information system data exchange can improve care;
  • Virtual exhibit hall featuring exhibitors showcasing services and products tailored for public health professionals and their agencies; and
  • All conference content available to registrants on NACCHO University for one year post-event.

Due to the multi-disciplinary nature of public health and the field’s diverse workforce ranging from clinicians and epidemiologists to health educators and policy analysts, public health professionals often find themselves siloed. As a result, the struggle to meaningfully engage and collaborate, both within the field and beyond, remains. But in 2020, NACCHO is tackling this long-standing disconnect by changing how we unite our members and partners.
