Healthy Start Health Equity Assessment Webinar

November 1, 2023

Thank you for joining the Healthy Start TA & Support Center, in partnership with Amaka Consulting and Evaluation Services (ACES), LLC, for the Healthy Start Health Equity Assessment Webinar onNovember 1. The TASC and ACES, a trusted minority and woman-owned consultancy firm, designed and implemented an opt-in survey assessment of equity work at Healthy Start (HS) sites across the country. The goal of the assessment was to explore existing health-equity-related activities across HS sites. Secondary aims were to assess attitudes towards and readiness for engagement in health equity work, as well as opportunities for health-equity-related technical assistance across sites. The assessment addressed the following three categories: Community Action Network (CAN), Health Equity Work, and Technical Assistance Needs.

During this webinar the Amaka team presented results, analysis, important trends and recommendations based on these findings. The TASC encouraged everyone to join this webinar to learn more about the important health equity work being done in HS and current challenges being faced. Participants also had an opportunity to ask the team questions about the assessment and recommendations presented.
