2023 Health Equity Summit: A Movement for Justice logo ASTHO’s Health Equity Summit is an annual convening of state and island area health officials, federal and local partners, and stakeholders committed to advancing health and racial equity. This event is designed by and for public health professionals, health equity leaders, and their partners. Attendees have conversations that inspire action to confront health inequities’ root causes and move towards justice. The summit provides a forum for leaders to gather and learn more about health equity initiatives across the nation and how to implement similar policies in their own jurisdictions.

Thank You

Thank you for joining us at this year’s Health Equity Summit. We were thrilled to have so many of you attend in-person or virtually on April 25 – 26.

This year’s summit provided a platform and forum for:

  • Motivating the public health workforce and stakeholders to prioritize implementing evidence-based practices and policies directed toward advancing the health and well-being of people who have experienced historical discrimination and oppression.
  • Promoting equity practices that are sustainable within our public health system by working alongside community members to envision a nation that supports optimal health for all. 
  • Encouraging collaboration and information sharing among state and federal health officials, partners, and stakeholders across states and jurisdictions to advance equity.

We hope that you found the event valuable and informative, and we hope to see you at next year's event. You can visit our past resources to learn more about our previous summits.
