Center for Health Equity Practice

MPHI helps those who work in public health and related fields understand health equity, social justice, and the social determinants of health so they can work together to reduce the likelihood that people are disadvantaged because of their race, class, or gender. This is accomplished by collaborating with partners to implement programs, conduct research, and support strategies that address the root causes of inequities, including workshops, technical assistance, facilitation, and consultations centered around equity and social justice. Projects within the Center for Health Equity Practice (CHEP) speak directly to issues of poverty, inequality, and the social systems that contribute to them. CHEP is currently leading intensive learning lab sessions with staff at the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services to identify and implement strategies to address health inequities within the communities they serve. The Center also works closely with Michigan Power to Thrive, a partnership between public health professionals and community organizers focused on promoting racial equity.
