Transformational Community Engagement: Working With Community to Advance Health Equity

Health Equity Solutions

On Tuesday, February 28, State Health and Value Strategies hosted a webinar that explored how states can implement community engagement strategies that amplify community voices, engage program enrollees, and translate engagement into more effective and equitable health initiatives. Community engagement is a critical component in advancing health equity as it enables trust and respect, improves barriers to health, and allows for efficacy by ensuring programs utilize experiences from the communities they impact. State reactors also highlighted recent Medicaid community engagement efforts.

The webinar, facilitated by Health Equity Solutions (HES), drew on two recently published issue briefs: Transformational Community Engagement to Advance Health Equity and State Examples of Medicaid Community Engagement Strategies: Two Case Studies.
