Getting to health and well-being for the nation

September 29, 2018

Health begins long before illness or injury strikes in our homes, schools, neighborhoods, and places of work. The ability of individuals and families to lead healthy and productive lives is influenced by personal choices, as well as our experiences and the conditions in the communities where we live: the social determinants of health. Appropriately addressing the social determinants of health will require collaborative and innovative approaches across the private and public sectors. Central to this effort is the need to clearly define the value proposition for addressing the social determinants of health, not only as part of the value-based care agenda, but also as part of broad approaches to building healthy communities. The National Alliance to impact the Social Determinants of Health NASDOH was formed with this need in mind.
