Health Outreach Partners invites health centers and organizations dedicated to advancing health equity to join us on April 21st, 2021 at 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM PDT/ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT for a webinar titled “Building Community Partnerships to Advance Health Equity.”
Achieving health equity requires successful, multi-sectoral partnerships that are creative, innovative and share a common goal.

Our presentation will focus on innovative practices and highlight resources for fostering and maintaining collaborations.
This webinar will feature Ellen Lawton, JD, a national expert in the integration of legal professionals into the health care setting to address the social determinants of health.
