Summit Mission

The Health Equity High School Summit (HEHSS) intends to introduce high school students to the discipline of public health and health equity. The summit is a full day event, free of charge to attendees. Morning snacks, lunch, and a free t-shirt are included. The summit will be kicked-off by a keynote speaker, comprise of mini-workshops on health disparities, and teach students how to solve real-world public health problems through a brief team case study competition. At the end of the summit, we hope students will be able to identify their own definition of health equity and apply what they have learned to their own communities and future careers.
