The MDH HEAL Council serves to advise the Minnesota Department of Health. MDH will rely on the advisory council to provide forthright and constructive feedback on the strategic direction of the Center for Health Equity and MDH. Goals include evaluating short- and long-term priorities and ensuring that MDH interfaces successfully with communities most impacted by health inequities.
By February 15, 2019, and annually thereafter, the HEAL Council will prepare and submit a report to the commissioner that summarizes the activities of the advisory council. The report will also describe specific objectives that the group will pursue during the next year.
