Join us for MDHEQ's 2023 Annual Meeting!

Our community partners, leaders from the Little Earth of United Tribes, will share wisdom on medical racism, housing insecurity, environmental racism, and civic engagement and also lead a tour of the Little Earth community. We'll also host a discussion featuring physician/legislator perspectives on how to partner with the community on advocacy issues.

Lunch from Muck-Wa Meals and light refreshments from Pow Wow Grounds will be provided.

All are welcome. MDHEQ's work is made possible by the support and engagement of our members. While you do not have to be a member to attend, we encourage you to join us. Our members are healthcare professionals and community members who advocate for health equity in all aspects of their professional, public, and private lives.

Educating and activating health professionals to work toward health equity


Health Professionals will use their voice, knowledge, and influence to eliminate the inequities that exist in health and healthcare, while working effectively with their patients, health systems, communities, and decision makers to address health equity wherever they live, work, learn, and play.
