What: Third Annual National Summit on the Social Determinants of Heath
When: October 8-9, 2018
Where: Sheraton, New Orleans, Louisiana
It is increasingly critical to understand the clear associations between social determinants and poor health status among children, adults and seniors. 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 cost to the healthcare sector, businesses and communities is in the billions. The human toll is incalculable.
The Root Cause Coalition, a non-profit, member-driven organization established to identify, understand and overcome the social determinants of health is proud to host the Third Annual Summit on the Social Determinants of Health on October 8-9 in New Orleans. Our robust, two-day agenda will bring together representatives from healthcare, the non-profit sector, the faith community, researchers, clinicians, government leaders, educators and businesses to share best practices, connect with local communities and engage in a crucial discussion of how to best address the social determinants of health.
