WOEMA Honors Juneteenth National Independence Day

On June 19, 1865, enslaved people of African descent in Galveston, Texas were finally officially told that they were free from slavery—nearly 2.5 years after the Emancipation Proclamation had formally freed them. Since that time, June 19 has come to be known and celebrated as Juneteenth, the date marking the end of slavery in the United States. In 2021, President Biden signed a bill establishing June 19 as a federal holiday, Juneteenth National Independence Day. While much remains to be done to dismantle structural racism, we acknowledge this day as a celebration of progress and an affirmation that change is possible.

Translating Evidence into Policy: The Arizona COVID-19 Experience

February 23, 2022 @ 12:00 PM (PST)

Public health policy is crafted from evidence-based population level research and relies on the legal authorities provided to national, state, and local government to be placed into practice.   During the Covid-19 pandemic, decisions made by elected officials influenced the degree to which public health measures are implemented in workplaces, schools, and other community spaces.   These decisions, made early in the pandemic, lead to outcomes that continue to manifest today, but the path connecting evidence-based medicine, the decisions made to implement into public health policy, and outcomes is not always clear.   Using the Arizona Covid-19 experience as a case study, Will Humble (Executive Director of the Arizona Public Health Association) will detail the interlocking relationships between state government and state public health agencies in translating evidence into policy.
