Discussion Questions

  1. If you have discussed health equity with policy or other decision-makers, what did you say and what was the reaction?
  2. If you haven’t discussed health equity with policy or other decision-makers, what has prevented you from doing so?
  3. Think about your service area. What populations/geographies in that area have the greatest health or economic need? What proof points could you offer about why new health policies should be implemented there first?
