Live, Work, Play: Social Determinants of Health

February 7, 2017 @ 5:30 pm 8:30 pm

Health Forward is proud to sponsor the American Public Square’s dinner and panel discussion on social determinants.

Conditions in places where people live, work and play affect a wide range of health risks and outcomes.  These conditions are known as social determinants of health and differences in health are striking in communities with poor social determinants of health.  A panel of experts will discuss these conditions and the policies and programs for addressing them.
