    General Session Three: Building Equity into the Post-COVID World

    General Session Three: Building Equity into the Post-COVID World

    The COVID-19 pandemic stands to have profound effects on the nation’s economy, health care system and job market, as well as the lives of individual residents. While the virus itself does not discriminate, its impact is not uniformly felt across all population groups. As counties play an essential role in community health, human services and economic development, the pandemic and state and local fiscal recovery funds such as the American Rescue Plan Act provide a critical opportunity for county leaders to intentionally center health equity in their practices and policies. With a health equity lens, county leaders can identify the conditions that keep residents from thriving and create solutions that speak directly to community needs. This session will offer strategies for building equity into future health policy and funding decisions so that everyone has an equal opportunity to thrive.
