Addressing Social Determinants of Health October 2020 - February 2021

The goal of this course is to equip public health professionals with the information and skills they need to apply a systems thinking approach to in order to: 
  • Identify upstream determinants impacting specific health outcomes
  • Identify shared risk factors across multiple health outcomes
  • Describe metrics by which to measure change in upstream determinants
  • Identify strategies to impact upstream determinants
  • Communicate with partners to identify common goals and collective funding approaches
Participants will also assess organizational readiness or barriers to authentically engaging the community, applying a shared risk approach, braiding funding, and engaging in cross-program and cross-sector partnerships for upstream impact. Working in teams of 2 of their choosing, participants will take their understanding of social determinants of health to the next level as they identify actionable steps to impact the root causes resulting in poor health outcomes in their communities.
