Faces of Disparity Video

The Faces of Disparity Awareness Campaign, which was created by the Communication and Media Committee, consists of two complementary media productions:  The Faces of Disparity Exhibit, and the Faces of Disparity Video.  The exhibit and video, which may be shown independently or together, raise awareness of health disparities in Connecticut and introduce the CLAS Standards (National Standards on Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services) as resources for change.

The Faces of Disparity Video is a 15-minute documentary that integrates personal stories of health care consumers (as portrayed in the exhibit) with the perspectives of leading experts in health care and public health.  The video defines health disparities, identifies contributing factors, and presents CLAS Standards as resources for change.
