Health Equity Science Symposium


November 8, 2021    

Target Audience

CDC staff interested in advancing health  equity through health equity science and  public health practice, including CDC staff who conduct and publish research and program evaluations as well as program leaders.

Learning Objectives

To identify and disseminate some the fundamental concepts related to equity science. Instruction will focus on how to define an equity focused science agenda. It will include two tracks; track (A) will focus on how implementation science can inform the design and evaluation of public health interventions so that they address health disparities  and advance health equity science, and track (B) which will focus on core  components of health equity-informed  scientific documentation, including data  analysis and scientific writing.

After participating in the Health Equity  Science Symposium, learners should be able to:

• Summarize some approaches for  advancing health equity science in  public health 

• Identify some methods for develop  rigorous public health interventions to address health disparities

• Identify some methods for strengthening  their scientific writing to reflect and  translate health equity science into public health impact



Facilitated by the UCSF Pandemic Initiative for Equity and Action (UPIEA) and the

UCSF PRISE Center (Partnerships for Research in Implementation Science for Equity Center).

Hosted by the CDC Office of Science.
