Dr. Cynthia A. Gómez, the chair of Adira’s board, has published “Addressing Health Equity and Social Determinants of Health Through Healthy People 2030,” in the Journal of Public Health Management and Practice.

From the abstract:

To inform Healthy People 2030’s visionary goal of achieving health equity in the coming decade, the Secretary’s Advisory Committee on National Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Objectives for 2030 provided the US Department of Health and Human Services with guidance on key terms, frameworks, and measurement for health equity.

A podcast companion to the journal, JMPH Direct Talk, also hosted Dr. Gómez to discuss the article.
