Healthy Nashville Summit 2015

The 6th annual Healthy Nashville Summit will focus on  health equity.   

What is Health Equity?

Healthy People 2020 defines health equity as "attainment of the highest level of health for all people. Achieving health equity requires valuing everyone equally with focused and ongoing societal efforts to address avoidable inequalities, historical and contemporary injustices, and the elimination of health and health care disparities."

Why the focus on Health Equity in Nashville?

Health equity was found to be one of the top strategic priorities for the Metro Public Health Department and the larger Nashville Community during the 2013 community health assessment process.  

The ‘State of Health Equity and Social Determinants of Health in Nashville’ will be launched at the Summit with a goal of beginning the conversation about how we can come together as a community and continue our journey towards health equity.  

The Healthy Nashville Summit will be held on Friday, June 5, 2015 at the Downtown Nashville Public Library.
