Join us in changing the conversation about what creates health equity within public health, across government, and in communities. Together, we will learn guiding strategic practices; hear case studies from a national expert, Lili Farhang of Human Impact Partners, and organizations doing this work in Indiana and beyond; and consider what actions and next steps are needed to champion transformational change. The Summit will address how we must systematically address power imbalances, racism, and other forms of oppression to reduce disparities and create healthy, vibrant places for all.


Keynote Presentation:
In pursuit of health equity: What would a transformative practice mean for us?

Lili Farhang co-directs Human Impact Partners and is responsible for advancing the mission and strategic direction of the organization. For nearly 20 years, she’s visioned, developed, and implemented policy and systems change to advance health equity in the government and nonprofit sectors, and she’s feeling energized by people’s willingness to talk about race, power and the other root drivers of health. Human Impact Partners is a national nonprofit organization using research, advocacy, capacity building, and field building to challenge the inequities that harm the health of our communities with a mission to transform the policies and places people need to live healthy lives by increasing the consideration of health and equity in decision-making.
