Topics: Overview of social determinants of health and their role in shaping communities
Although medical care is critically important to individual health, factors such as the quality of schools, cost of living, access to jobs with fair pay, and the safety of our neighborhoods can further facilitate, or hinder, good health in the long term. The conditions in which we live, work and play are indicators of why some people are healthier than others. This training will delve into the social determinants of health (SDoH), and their role in shaping communities, and how to move toward health equity.
