2016 Nevada Public Health Association Annual Conference
Health Equity: Aiming for the Highest Level of Health for All Nevadans
September 22-23, 2016
Springs Preserve, Las Vegas, Nevada
Health is a basic human right, and every Nevadan deserves a fair chance to lead a healthy life. Unfortunately, the life circumstances in which people are born, grow, live, work, and age can impact health outcomes. Achieving health equity in Nevada involves addressing complex social inequalities influenced by the distribution of money, power, and resources. This year’s conference will examine health inequities based on social constructs such as employment, health care, housing, public safety, education, and food access, and will present innovative programs in Nevada working to address these complex issues.
