Health Equity Peer Exchange: Jefferson County, Ky.

Jun. 7, 2018 – Jun. 8, 2018

Join the National Association of Counties and your peers for a two-day peer exchange focused on health equity in Jefferson County/Louisville, Ky.  This event will bring together county leaders from across the country to learn about Jefferson County’s efforts to address the root causes of health disparities. Experts and stakeholders from local government, nonprofit community organizations and academia will discuss Jefferson County’s childhood poverty initiatives, investments in education and food security, violence prevention efforts, site transformation projects and more. Participants will learn how to effectively collaborate with nontraditional partners and will engage in discussions about how to create more healthy and equitable communities in their counties. Participants will also visit Jefferson County communities that are partnering with local nonprofit organizations to discover creative new ways to identify health priorities and to develop health equity action plans.
