Sponsor: NACDD

As defined by the World Health Organization, the social determinants of health (SDOH) are “the conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work, and age. These circumstances are shaped by the distribution of money, power, and resources at global, national, and local levels.” This panel discussion will feature a cross-sector dialogue that examines this emerging area in public health through the theme of “Elevating Public Health to Social Health – Establishing Multisectoral Partnerships to Impact the Root Causes of Chronic Disease.”

The panel includes perspectives from Dr. Karen Hacker, Director of CDC’s National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, former Secretary of HHS Michael Leavitt, Vice President of Healthier Communities at Spectrum Health Dr. Ken Fawcett, NACDD Board President Monica Morales, and President of Leavitt Partners Solutions Susan Winckler (moderator). Join us for this Members-only webinar featuring some of the leading-edge thinkers in public health, healthcare, and health policy.
