Sharing updates in research from multiple disciplines
This publication serves researchers, practitioners, community leaders and members, policymakers and others focused on addressing multi-sector health inequities, globally and locally. It highlights the complex connections between various determinants of health and wellbeing for all.
The Health Equity Connector connects those from diverse sectors and disciplines by sharing original writings and visuals from Johns Hopkins colleagues, partner organizations and communities we work with.
Each edition will also offer a tailored list of useful articles, tools and tips curated from relevant publications and social media postings, and highlight global and local opportunities including events, funding, contests and training resources.
