Webinar:Building Healthy Communities COVID-19 & Equity in NH

Join the Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce for a complimentary webinar addressing health disparity in New Hampshire.

In New Hampshire and across the country, the COVID-19 pandemic is impacting various communities in different ways. During this webinar, representatives from the New Hampshire Office of Health Equity (OHE), the Division of Public Health Services (DPHS), and the Brandeis Institute on Assets and Social Policy (IASP) will share compelling data about the disproportionate impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on New Hampshire's communities of color. Guest panelists Trinidad Tellez, MD, NH Dept. of Health and Human Services’ Director of Office of Health Equity, Kirsten Durzy, MPH, NH DHHS’ Evaluator of Division of Public Health Services, and Jessica Santos, PhD, Brandeis University’s Director of Community-Engaged Research at the Institute on Assets and Social Policy, will break down the numbers so that we may understand their implications. As the state rebuilds its economy and works to make New Hampshire a safe and welcoming place for all its residents, building the health of communities impacts the economic health of everyone, as well as the future economic vitality of the state.

Join the discussion and learn why health disparities exist, how they impact everyone and what we can do as a community to begin to address them so that everyone in New Hampshire has the same opportunity to be healthy and thrive. Presented in partnership with Protect Our Care NH.

A large portion of this webinar is reserved for Q&A; be prepared to submit your questions during the live discussion.
