POLICY TO PRACTICE: THE FUTURE OF SOCIAL DETERMINANTS OF HEALTH SCREENING AND INTERVENTIONS
About the Conference
Social determinants of health (SDOH) are the conditions in which people are born, grow, work and live that influence people’s overall health and well-being. There is a growing acknowledgement that addressing SDOH is an important component of reducing health care costs and improving population health. This event brings together national public health and research experts to engage in a dialogue on the current and future state of addressing SDOH, where they address the following questions:
- How do current methods of screening for SDOH compare?
- What are the strategies for applying research on SDOH screening to practice and service delivery?
- What is the impact of SDOH programs on the health of populations?
- What are the legal and ethical considerations of implementing SDOH screening tools?
