Social determinants of health (SDOH) subject of new webinar series
Editors' Note: This story ran in our July newsletter, published July 1.
Beginning Thursday, July 15, the Mid-America MHTTC in collaboration with Aetna Better Health of Kansas will deliver a free webinar series, Context Clues: Using Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) to Enhance Treatment, offering health care providers and other interested parties the tools they need to identify social determinants of health and strategies for addressing them.
Webinar attendees will learn how economic stability, access to quality education, access to quality health care, neighborhood and environmental factors, and social and community context affect patients’ health and quality-of-life outcomes.
After an introduction to social determinants of health on July 15, webinars will be divided into two flash presentations on SDOH-related topics. A certificate for one contact hour will be provided upon completion of each session.
