The CLAS Initiative relies on the use of subcommittees to move our work forward. We aim to address and end health disparities for racial, ethnic, linguistic, and gender minorities, as well as individuals with disabilities.
Both Department of Public Health (DPH) staff and non-DPH staff and community members are invited to join.
Meetings usually occur monthly, though some subcommittees meet more often. Most meetings take place at:
