Lunch Break With The Village

Achieving Equity in Public Health

November 16, 2023

This month’s episode of Lunch Break With The Village focused on public health inequities and how to improve systems that shape our health options and outcomes.

Our guest was Pareesa Charmchi Goodwin, the inaugural executive director of the Commission on Racial Equity in Public Health for the Connecticut General Assembly.

We learned about:

  • Important drivers of health and the impact of poverty
  • Current work to dismantle structural racism locally
