During its 2nd Annual National Summit on the Social Determinants of Heath
, the Root Cause Coalition
is offering a robust two-day agenda
bringing together representatives from healthcare, the non-profit sector, the faith community, researchers, clinicians, government leaders, educators, and businesses to share best practices, offer community connections and resources, and engage in the crucial discussion of how to implement real, sustainable, community-focused interventions that get at the underlying root causes of poor health.
It is critical to understand and concentrate on the clear associations between social determinants and poor health status. Factors such as food insecurity, lack of safe and affordable housing, quality education, transportation, and isolation have a significant impact on individual health and the collective health of our nation.The annual cost to healthcare, businesses, and communities is in the billions. The human toll is incalculable.
