This session will include presentations that critically examine teaching about the intersection of health equity and policies. This includes public health and healthcare policies as well as policies whose primary focus is not health (e.g., policies involving economics, energy, environment, agriculture, housing, transportation, education, the legal system, etc). Abstracts on teaching both in and outside of academic settings, including trainings within public health agencies, other agencies that implement policies, and also oriented to policymakers, as well as across the spectrum of social and economic groups, are included. Some topics covered include: a) Trainings that critically teach about promoting health equity through policy change, including but not limited to public health policy  b) Teaching about how healthcare policies address (or fail to address) health equity  c) Introductory courses that teach about the concepts of “Health in All Policies,” approaches to its implementation (e.g., involving intersectoral work, shared health governance, “joined-up” policies), and how to build in goals regarding health equity.  Specifically, our presenters will be covering a range of topics to promote health equity through leadership development, anti-racist training and capacity building in communities and in health departments.
