This report summarizes key lessons learned from the Health Equity Advocacy Strategy (HEAS), a multi-phase, multi-year effort aimed at building a strong, effective field of health equity advocates statewide.

An HEAS cohort of 18-grantees includes a variety of grasstops and grassroots advocacy, service and organizing groups. Within this collaborative endeavor, a core focus of the HEAS grantees has centered on discussions around effective, appropriate and authentic engagement strategies for affected populations (in this case, populations that experience the brunt of poor health outcomes and inequities).
