Public health challenges are complex and involve multiple factors rooted in social and structural determinants of health that contribute to health inequities. These complex problems cannot be solved in silos and require a cross-sector and collaborative approach, like Health in All Policies (HiAP). While HiAP is an active and growing practice in the United States, what exactly does it take to implement HiAP, and how can it be done successfully? Our speaker, Emily Suter, will discuss the importance of cross-sector collaboration, community and partner engagement, and data-driven decision-making, monitoring, and evaluation (and more!) during the implementation process, followed by a segment for discussion of opportunities and challenges participants may encounter.
