The third webinar in the Planners4Health Curriculum series takes a deep dive into equity, a theme that flows through the entire webinar series. Participants will learn about the differences between equality and equity, and the role equity plays in building healthy communities. Applying an equity lens to all aspects of a project is key, with special attention paid to the coalition building process. Participants will also learn about how to mitigate the unintended consequences of displacement and gentrification. The Ajo, AZ Plan4Health coalition will share success, challenges, and lessons learned from their work on the ground.

The webinar will be 60 minutes and is eligible for 1.0 CM credit.  An optional 30-minute, peer-led conversation will follow the webinar.
