Addressing the health and safety issues of communities across the country can be seen as both a concern and an opportunity. Current efforts recognize the importance of collaborative, cross-sector decision-making and strategic policies, practices and programs that will benefit of all populations, but how do we make this a reality? Our keynote speakers will address the challenges in reducing disparities, provide insight on what the words “healthy” and “safe” mean for different communities, and discuss strategies and best practices that assure conditions for optimal health and safety for all people.
