Conference Overview: Health in All Policies (HiAP) is an innovative systems change approach to the processes through which policies are created and implemented. This MPHA conference will help attendees increase awareness about the health implications of policy in many sectors, not just those explicitly related to health. Attendees will learn how HiAP principles can contribute to the policy making process at all levels of government (and other organizations) and positively impact the determinants of health as well as fulfill the original (non-health) objectives of the policy. Examples of putting HiAP into practice will be shared. The conference will also present key strategies essential to creating health equity and addressing health disparities.
Audience: All stakeholders interested in improving the health of Minnesota communities.

- Susan Haigh, JD Chair, Met Council and President and CEO of Twin Cities Habitat for Humanity, HiAP in Practice -Transportation, Water, Housing
