Political Determinants of Health

Sessions will be held every other Thursday from 8:00-9:00am EST starting Thursday February 9th through June 15th, 2023.


Each year the legislature debates proposed bills that can advance or jeopardize the health of the people of the Granite State. The executive branch – the Governor, Executive Council, and agencies - also decides on funding and programming that impacts health. This ECHO will examine legislation and executive action and consider together how we can best advocate to assure that NH policies advance the health of Granite Staters.  Your voice can make a difference!
