About the Event
In this installment of Community Engagement and Health Equity Speaker Series, Al Richmond, MSW, presents “Advancing Health Equity Through Partnerships During a Pandemic.”
At the core of the COVID-19 pandemic is a stark truth that health inequities, often dismissed and forgotten, are realities that drive poor health outcomes for many. As such, increased attention has been given to community-centric approaches that center partnerships with community-based organizations. Richmond will share his work with federal, state and local agencies that have launched a coordinated response to the pandemic that centers authentic community engagement. The presentation will also highlight principles of community engagement developed by Community-Campus Partnerships for Health.
Richmond is the executive director of Community-Campus Partnerships for Health, where he advances the organization’s commitment to social justice and health equity. He is a global thought leader advocating for the increased role of communities in research and public health.
