• Engaging communities, organizations, and leaders across all sectors to advance policies to improve the conditions for optimal health and health equity.
• Conducting and collaborating on research which informs best practices, models, and policies that reduce and ultimately eliminate health disparities.
• Influencing policy and resource allocation to promote health equity through testimonies, publications, and active communication of relevant and timely health information to decision makers, professional organizations, and the public.
