The North Dakota Department of Health’s Community Engagement Unit and Division of Sexually Transmitted and Bloodborne Diseases are excited to host a collaborative learning experience for health professionals of various disciplines. This conference will emphasize how health equity is a core component in all public health programs. Using a health equity lens, priorities and best practices around sexual health and harm reduction will be presented to encourage dialogue and sharing among participants. This conference will serve as a place to engage professionals on ways to address health inequities, share ideas and work together towards eliminating health disparities and achieving optimal health for all North Dakotans.
