The American Rescue Plan has led to an increased focus on equity in public health due to the pandemic’s lasting impact on vulnerable communities. We understand health departments will play a significant role in building back our cities after COVID-19. Strengthening the public health workforce and community health programming is a significant part of recovery plans for many health departments around the nation. With this in mind, we have invited representatives from health departments across Texas to discuss their goals related to health equity, what they look forward to strengthening now that there is more attention to health equity, and how can our students and faculty help support these efforts.
