Center for Health Equity: Listening Session

The Long Beach Department of Health and Human Services is proud to partner with the Los Angeles County Health Agency to host a listening session for their newly launched Center for Health Equity on January 16th, 2018 from 5:00 – 7:00 PM at the Miller Family Health Education Center (3820 Cherry Ave.)

The Center will initially focus on five initiatives:
1) Closing the gap in infant mortality given higher rates of poor birth outcomes for African American, Native American, and Native Hawaiian babies when compared to birth outcomes for White and Asian babies
2) Closing the gap in sexually transmitted infections given disproportionally high rates of infections among men of color, LGBTQ persons, and African American women
3) Reducing disproportionate exposures to environmental toxins given the high burden of environmental hazards in communities of color and lower-income communities
4) Improving fragmented and episodic care for residents with complex health issues by linking population-based approaches with comprehensive service delivery models through the Department of Mental Health’s Health Neighborhood
5) Ensuring cultural and linguistic competency throughout the Health Agency so all practitioners have the skills, values and principles to honor, understand, appreciate and respect the differing social, cultural, and linguistic needs of clients/residents.

Translation services will be available. Materials provided in English and Spanish.
