Guest Lectures: Increasing Student Knowledge of Health in All Policies by Using the Health Impact Checklist (HI-C)
The Kansas Health Institute (KHI) is a nonprofit organization that supports effective policymaking through nonpartisan research, education and engagement. KHI believes evidence-based information, objective analysis and civil dialogue enable policy leaders to be champions for a healthier Kansas. KHI has a history of collaboration with academic institutions to build student capacity in data analysis and interpretation, policy analysis and Health in All Policies (HiAP). HiAP is a collaborative approach that integrates and articulates health and equity considerations into policy making and programming across sectors, and at all levels, to improve the health of all communities and individuals [i] Given that young people have a significant role to play in transforming communities, KHI believes in the importance of educating students about the role of policies and systems in creating healthy and vibrant communities.
