In 2016, in response to the ongoing lead water crisis, the Genesee County Board of Health in Michigan proposed a Health Equity in All Policies (HEiAP) Resolution to address inequitable health outcomes.
Taking steps to implement the resolution, the Genesee County Health Department (GCHD) worked with community groups to offer trainings and host public health conferences that incorporate aspects of HiAP. Building off these actions, GCHD decided to host a HEiAP workshop for community members, local government officials, and legislators.
The workshop planning committee included GCHD, NACCHO, Community Foundation of Greater Flint, Community Based Organization Partners, City of Flint Mayor’s Office, and Michigan Department of Civil Rights. The goal of the HEiAP workshop was to provide a forum for different audiences, including community members and policy makers, to learn about HiAP and offer feedback on the direction of HiAP in Genesee County.
The workshop took place on Monday, June 4, 2018, in Flint, MI. Read the workshop report.
