The Nevada Minority Health & Equity Coalition (NMHEC) is a partnership of academic, civic, private and community organizations that aim to address health disparities and inequities in Nevada by building capacity, informing policy, and conducting research.


The Nevada Minority Health and Equity Coalition will be hosting a series of workshops from June 2022 to March 2023 on a variety of topics that aim to build capacity to address health disparities in Nevada.


Our goal is to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and to increase vaccine uptake among communities at greatest risk in Nevada by engaging community leaders and members as active participants in education and outreach efforts.


Is your organization interested in becoming a formal partner with the Nevada Minority Health & Equity Coalition? We offer two partnership types: Allied Partners and Associated Partners. Learn about the benefits, responsibilities, and how to join and become a part of NMHEC.


Introduction to Health Communication


This workshop will cover the basic principles of health communication and the various delivery methods of these types of health information. Participants will learn the definitions, different types of health communication, and practice health communication messaging.


Community-Based Participatory Research and the Roles of Power, Trust, and Culture


Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR) is the combination of research and partnership building when assessing a community priority. Partnerships are diverse, often including individuals from specific communities, organizations, academic institutions, and/or coalitions. The CBPR approach strives for shared decision making and involvement of partners and community members during all phases of the process. This two-part workshop will introduce CBPR, its principles, critical points in partnership development and issues throughout the research and partnership processes. Issues related to power dynamics, trust, and culture will be highlighted in the workshop sessions. This workshop is inclusive for anyone interested in research and assessment. Each session will incorporate education for organizations implementing and evaluating community programs.


How to Write a Technical Report


This workshop requires no previous systems experience. Individuals of all levels are invited to attend this highly interactive, collaborative workshop. Participants can expect to gain a foundational understanding of systems theory, be able to create system maps, and access tools for integrating diverse views and synthesizing them into a framework or model that can describe and anticipate how systems could react to change.
