ICHD Releases Health Equity Videos and Resources

Ingham County Health Department recently released a series of three short videos on Health Equity and Social Justice. A national leader in health equity for the past twenty years, Ingham County is pleased to continue building on its strong foundations. The videos discuss local successes and challenges in the areas of infant mortality, heart disease, asthma, housing, employment, and incarceration. The videos, each 4-5 minutes in length, provide a basic narrative about health inequities, disparities, and root causes such as racism, gender oppression, and other forms of discrimination. Accompanying the video release is a set of data highlights on some of the most pressing inequities in our community, and a set of online tools and resources.
