Listening Session Held at Antelope Valley Partners for Health (AVPH)

Lancaster – Tuesday evening January 30 six tables of six participants each met at AVPH to be introduced to Los Angeles County’s announcement of the formation of CHE … Center for Health Equality. Public Health introduced the Center to community partners and stakeholders. The County was looking for what the participants considered best practices, who would be its critical partners and to gather suggestions on what we thought should be the most productive engagement strategies for CHE’s inaugural initiatives.

The guests took a “Gallery Walk” around the room to view the white posts pinned on the walls describing five unfair health burdens to prioritize and address:

1. Infant Mortality 2. Sexually transmitted infections 3. Environmental justice 4. Health Neighborhoods 5. Linguistic competency
