2021 MPHA "Public Health Matters" VIRTUAL Policy Forum Series
"Environmental Health: Is There Justice for All?"
Continue to explore the intersection between environmental health and health equity. The four forums we have planned for the 2020-2021 year are sure to be thought-provoking explorations of the challenges we face in ensuring that the public health needs of every Minnesotan are addressed.
All 2020-2021 forums will be held virtually.
Online networking begins 7:45am. Each forum starts promptly at 8:00am and concludes at 9:30am. Please join Minnesota’s public health community in these breakfast conversations:

Our panelists, moderator and participants will explore the distribution and impact of environmental health burdens and resources for our most vulnerable population groups. In what ways do environmental concerns influence social determinants of health?
May 7, 2021…in our public health response
