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


Health communication is the practice of sharing effective, accurate, and actionable information with the community to empower well-informed health choices. Community-based organizations have a growing involvement in the creation and dissemination of health-related information that can impact lives. This workshop will cover the basic principles of health communication and the various ways to deliver health information. The workshop will be interactive and does not require prior health communication experience. Come ready to get creative!


Grants Administration – Basics


Grant administration encompasses the duties of designing and managing the grant from pre-award through post-award closeout. These duties begin as the grant proposal is written since the fiscal responsibilities and reporting requirements need to be taken into consideration before the grant is awarded. In this introductory level workshop, interested community agencies will learn the basics of successfully searching, applying, and managing grants.


Equity Through Interconnection: Exploring a Systems Approach to Community Health and Social Change


Systems thinking is a holistic approach that examines the relationships or connections between various factors in a system, which can help reveal the underlying causes of a problem. This interactive workshop will offer valuable perspectives, tools, and strategies to create better solutions for health equity by enabling a deeper understanding of organizational or community challenges. Prior systems thinking experience is not required. Participants can expect to gain a foundational understanding of systems theory, be able to create system maps, and access tools to create a framework that can help anticipate possible reactions to change.


Building Community Power to Impact Change: Foundations of Community Organizing


Community Organizing is the methodology by which people come together to build collective power to solve social problems.  Non-violent community organizing has and continues to shape much of our daily lives. In this workshop we will review introductory concepts of community organizing through short case studies and explore tools to apply organizing methodologies to your daily practice.  This workshop is designed for people unfamiliar with the basics of community organizing, but open to all.
