Health Equity Training Modules

Date of Review: March, 2024

This curriculum includes 3 online modules about health equity that were produced by the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute’s Mobilizing Action Toward Community Health (MATCH) group and the Wisconsin Center for Public Health Education Training (WiCPHET). The modules include 10-20 minute interactive presentations, and are also available in downloadable PDF transcripts, and are organized as: 1. Introduction 2. Health and power 3. Operationalize health equity After the first module–which focuses on introductory definitions of terms such as health disparities, health inequities, and health equity–the following two modules are primarily concerned with advancing health equity through public programs, using approaches such as collaboration/empowerment of communities (module 2), and involvement in policy-making and program development (module 3). The modules, while informative, are primarily geared toward current public health professionals and MPH students seeking to become public health professionals. While the modules are likely to be informative to these target audiences, they may have limited appeal to medical audiences who do not plan to work for public health departments or to collaborate with community members to influence community-level drivers of health. Nevertheless, due to their high quality and ease of viewing, these materials are likely of value for education/trainings in public health-oriented groups. –Dave Liss, PhD, NCEAS
