Language matters. The words we use have the ability to build powerful and lasting allies or, just as quickly, to destroy and disengage entire communities. Words have the power to invite learning and meaningful discussion or to rapidly stigmatize and build walls of distrust. In fact, using language appropriately has lasting effects. The 2017 Health Equity Training Series focuses on the power of language and how you can help protect health and improve lives with thoughtful consideration on the impact of the language we use.
