Keely Rees, Health Education & Health Promotion, presented "Advocacy on the Local Level: Moving the Mountain Rock by Rock" at MN SOPHE: “What the Health? Understanding Disease, Diversity and Disparities on Oct. 22 in Minnesota. Advocacy is a process. It is grounded in theory, organization, and community building. It requires leadership, persistence, and passion and it can be tiring, frustrating and cumbersome. With strategic thinking, creativity, and compassion driven humans leading the efforts a lot can be accomplished over time. Rock by rock, step by step health educators can climb the advocacy mountain. We will cover seven key strategies for public health educators who are either just beginning their advocacy journey or need a refresher as a seasoned professional.
