Understanding the Ground: Social Determinants of Health in Rural Populations

Posted by on November 10th, 2020 Posted in: Minority Health Concerns, Public Health, Webinars
Tags: , ,


Social determinants of health are defined by the World Health Organization as “the conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work, and age.” For rural populations, many of these elements are less favorable than within urban areas. Building on work conducted by the Rural and Minority Health Research Center, this webinar presentation will review some of the key elements associated with health across rural White and minority populations, such as education, income, and health facility availability.

November 17 at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time. No registration but limited to the first 500.  Learn more and how to join the session
