2022 Community Conversations Final Report

_Community Conversations Banner.png

Health Equity Solutions engaged 204 Connecticut residents in 47 towns in conversations about health equity. We partnered with 5 community organizations and 6 libraries to reach more people than in prior years and deepen our understanding of what Connecticut residents see as the highest priorities for advancing health equity.

This year, we added questions about how participants wanted to be involved in making change. We also continued our trend of increasing participation from community members with 93% of participants representing themselves rather than an organization. This information will inform Health Equity Solutions’ 2023 policy agenda and be shared with the Commission on Racial Equity in Public Health (CREPH).

The Top Priorities Were:

  • Access and Affordability (38%);
  • Basic Needs ( 24%);
  • Quality of Care (18%);
  • Anti-Racism (12%);
  • Mental Health  (6%);
  • Other (3%);
