TUTA 2017

New Hampshire Public Health Association's (NHPHA) Annual Fall Event presented by NHPHA, VtPHA and Dartmouth-Hitchcock


Team Up, Take Action: Partnering for Health EquityJoin your peers and colleagues for a thorough and thoughtful day exploring the many factors that either enable or interfere with addressing conditions leading to health inequity. Presenters and breakout sessions will delve into identifying key levers such as policy, system, and environmental changes, types of partnerships and relationships, and other elements needed to be successful in advancing health equity. By targeting our work to produce the greatest health benefits for disadvantaged groups, ultimately our entire communities benefit.

Health equity means that everyone has the chance to be as healthy as possible. Health equity means reducing and eliminating disparities in health and its determinants that adversely affect excluded or marginalized groups. Health equity is inextricably linked with opportunity. It requires addressing obstacles to health such as poverty, discrimination, and their consequences, including powerlessness and lack of access to good jobs with fair pay, quality education and housing, safe environments, and health care. Health equity is fundamental to building a vibrant society because of its practical, economic, and civic implications and impact on individuals living a good life.

Governor Sununu, Help Defeat AHCA Changes!

Dear Governor Sununu:  

We are writing on behalf of the board and membership of the New Hampshire Public Health Association, a trusted voice that has worked to promote and protect the health of the people of New Hampshire for the last 25 years. 

We are asking that you join with your fellow governors, both Democratic and Republican, who are calling for a bipartisan Senate approach on healthcare reform to preserve critical health benefits for millions of Americans. All of the governors who have signed a letter urging this collaboration are from states like, New Hampshire, that have expanded Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act. The Republican bill in both chambers will phase out federal funding for that expansion.
 
As you well know, nearly 190,000 individuals have enrolled in Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program as of March 2107 and thus have had access to essential preventive and acute care health services. Continue reading here.
