National Summit on the Social Determinants of Health

The Root Cause Coalition’s 5th Annual National Summit on the Social Determinants of Health is scheduled for October 4-6, 2020 in Kansas City, Missouri. At the Summit we gather professionals from all areas of the healthcare sector, community based groups, educators, businesses, researchers and government leaders to share best practices and engage in the crucial discussion of ‘How To’ best address the social determinants of health and provide attendees with tools on how to collaborate across a wide range of sectors.

At last year’s Summit we were joined by more than 650 attendees representing a wide variety of professionals, all of whom are committed to learning and sharing real world interventions to address social determinants of health and health inequities. The Summit is an unrivaled opportunity to share best practices, engage in professional networking and learn about proven interventions that address the social factors that weigh so heavily on health outcomes.

We invite you to submit a proposal to serve as a featured speaker, lead a breakout session or present a poster at the 2020 National Summit that focuses on how your organization addresses health inequities and social determinants. We know many organizations are doing incredible work throughout the country and we would be pleased to have you join us at this event and share your expertise with others working on the social determinants of health and issues of health equity.
