From Good Intentions to Action: Tools and Systems Approaches to Address Social Determinants and “Injustice in Health”

12-13-2018 12:50

In 1966, Martin Luther King, Jr. said “Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in health is the most shocking and inhuman.” Yet taking action as primary care providers to understand health inequity—health injustice—and impact the health related context of people’s lives can seem overwhelming. In this panel discussion, you’ll hear from those who have developed and/or implemented systems approaches and practical tools to provide comprehensive, coordinated care to complex patients within the context of their “social determinants” and theircommunities. Following the panel presentation, each panelist will join attendees in separate rooms to share national best practices and exploration of these important topics.
