Health Equity and Research in Practice: A Virtual Convening Session #1 - Shared screen with speaker view
Denese, I love the modules for laypeople to learn research language/science fundamentals. Is there a bidirectional effort for scientists/researchers to learn the language of community members through appreciative inquiry, motivational interviewing, building trust, understanding cultural/social/racial equity? The efforts PCORI is doing to bridge the gap between science and applicability is wonderful.
Great question Carrie! Are community members able to apply for an engagement award to help address this effort?
Diane, as an awardee, we would be VERY interested in helping you, or any stakeholder on this webinar, apply to PCORI!
Chris Klolth (he, him. his)
I love seeing appreciative inquiry cited. I have found it very valuable in working with multicultural communities on healthcare issuers.
Denese did a great job of describing PCORI Ambassador program and where to find the online resources to learn how to get involved. If anyone wants to talk with an Ohio Ambassador, just give me an email and I will either talk with you myself or will connect you with one of the other Ohio Ambassadors. email@example.com
Al - You are representing OH well:) Thank you!

We'll have you back when we can convene in person!
Let’s hear it for all the Social Workers. Yay!
access and resources availability across communities
Appropriate care is provided consistently regardless of an individual's circumstances.
Meeting people where they are
Access and breaking down barriers.
Access to insurance for healthcare governance
Pursuit of access to quality and appropriate care of all people.
outcomes should not be determined by zip code
Sadly inequity comes to mind. Lack of access, lack of equal treatment, perceptions etc
Defining health equity? Access to whole person care - Inegrative health like massage therapy to develop body literacy
Fair treatment and access for all.
inclusivity, diversity, access across all spectrums of life age, ability, culture, race, gender, language
everyone has what they need that is fit for them- top
Opportunity for everyone slide 1
Everyone gets the same bike regardless of their needs
Its all the same, not accounting for needs
The equipment is the same regardless of the individuals ability
Everyone has the same - which may not be what they need
Same but unequal
Falling short of ensuring access for all.

All needs are not met
I often wonder if we change the language from Health Disparities to opportunities for Health Access through community opportunities? Working with youth participatory action research (YPAR), this is a discussion that often comes up with the youth.
Love this illustration and explanation
I think disparity is appropriate because access/opportunities are available but there are many underlying factors that create the disparity
I agree that it is the underlying factors that create the disparity. What we have found is the communities often have answers if given the structure to address the underlying factors for their communities. Al's example of the bike and iceberg is a great explaination.
Shout out to our HUB Community Health Workers who asked a great question around vaccine/trust at our last HUB monthly meeting: do the vaccines contain animal products/byproducts? We have learned that the answer is no. We don't know, never will, if that was a consideration during the R&D of these vaccines but thank goodness it doesn't because for large populations if the vaccine did, getting vaccinated would've been a complete non-starter.
What does naming "Racism" as a public health crisis actually mean?
or thinking about how perpetual systemic racism impacts mental health, chronic diseases, etc.
Regarding using People of Color or Black or African American - can require a level of vulnerability or discomfort. Getting comfortable asking the question is required. Being genuinely curious and authentic is necessary. Seek understanding.
Al, I really liked your examples of business rules that are needed if you are to have an authentic partnership. Wondering if you have a specific example or two that you could share on how to start the transformative experience conversation within an organization.
Great point Amanda! There is a great book that addresses what you are speaking to about "My GrandMother's Hands" by Resmaa Menakem
Thank you! I will look that book up!
Indeed. We are all interconnected. Individual vs. social responsibility.
I am from Africa and I am glad you highlight the global inequality.
Discomfort = Growth. Questions test our own assumptions and lead to clarity and transparency.
Exactly! We make so many assumptions based on our lived experience
Some people have limited minutes on phones. We have a lot of work to do:) So glad we care enough to make change:)
We know that employer's employment costs are impacted by the communities where they are located. So, it would be great to depict the cost of health disparities associated with racism and the impact on employers and communities in Columbus as well as next, concrete/action steps to positively address.
Shout out to Central State and Wilberforce in Ohio. HBCUs in the Buckeye state.

Thank you, Al. Great presentation. From my perspective, these principles and perspectives apply to all community work, not just health equity.
Chris you are right
