Inequities and disparities are deeply rooted in every aspect of society, including where we live, learn, work, and play and in the food we eat. How do we achieve a state in which all people have the same opportunities to reach their full nutrition and health potential? This facilitated discussion will unlock a spectrum of strategies for building food and community health equity using a systems lens.
- Understand how social environment is constructed.
- Understand how modern agricultural societies have created structurally inequitable societies.
- Have participated in exercises to imagine and create pathways toward more equitable and healthful societies.
- Understand that a constructed social environment cannot be separated from public health.
