HELEN-Weekly Listing

The Health Equity Leadership & Exchange Network (HELEN)  is a network that uses a health equity lens to analyze health laws and polices for education and outreach efforts. Members will actively inform, participate in, and monitor the development, implementation, and impact of health equity laws, policies and programs at the federal state and local levels.

We will provide updates (such as the one below) that HELEN sends out to their members from their HELEN Monitor weekly eblast.

Membership to HELEN is free and open to individuals and organizations with an interest in health equity; members have access to a resource library, online dashboard, and discussion forums.
