Webinar Overview:

Despite our significant spend, U.S. healthcare outcomes are among the lowest for developed countries. By addressing “social determinants” – health-related behaviors, socioeconomic factors, and environmental factors – we aim to improve health outcomes, reduce inequities, and lower costs.

Learning Objectives:

  • What are social determinants of health and why are they important?
  • What is population health and risk stratification and why are these important?
  • Why is it important for clinicians and community based organizations to partner with each other?
  • What is self-management and what are some evidence-based practices that include self-management skills?
