National Summit

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.

Our RFP process for the 2020 National Summit is now closed and all submission decisions were sent out on Monday, April 13th. If you have any questions, please email [email protected]

COVID 19 and Registration Update

We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 crisis as it evolves and are hopeful that it will be contained before the 5th National Summit on the Social Determinants of Health in October 2020. With this in mind, we are still planning to hold the National Summit in Kansas City from October 4-6. Yet, over the coming months we will be tracking the availability of our hotel venue, company, state and federal travel restrictions and government guidelines on large gatherings. Our primary priority is the health and safety of our attendees which will be our guiding principle moving forward with any programming decisions.

At this time though, the website for The Root Cause Coalition’s 5th Annual National Summit on the Social Determinants of Health has been launched and we’d like to officially invite you to register for this year’s event.  Please click here to learn more about the details of the 2020 Summit and register.
