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.


Use Your Voice: Advocate to Change Your Community


Advocacy can amplify a community’s voice in an effort to increase health equity. This workshop will explore different forms of policy, Nevada’s state legislative process, and the differences between advocacy and lobbying. Workshop attendees will learn how to communicate ideas and concerns to policymakers, as well as ways to engage with them. Additionally, this workshop will build on participants' experiences to find what will work best to mobilize change within their networks.


Fundamentals of Equity-Focused Community-Based Program Evaluations


Program evaluation is the formal assessment of a program or policy’s value and impact within a community, and it is becoming increasingly necessary for community-serving organizations to carry out this skill as the demand for rigorous evaluation rises. This workshop will provide a practical, skills-focused introduction to the different types of evaluation, concepts and techniques, equity-based approaches, and best practices of program evaluation. Participants can expect to learn the fundamental skills needed to participate in the evaluation of a new or existing program or policy.



The work @NVMHEC does for communities of color throughout Nevada is invaluable.

I was glad to sit down with them to hear about their progress, and what I can do to help support this important coalition.
