Social Determinants and Health Equity: Widening The Lens Of Health Promotion

This two-day course will examine the effects of social determinants of health such as economic status, stigma, homophobia, racism and other social and political issues on risk, prevalence and access to services.  A model and continuum of approaches will be introduced to assist prevention and care providers with implementation strategies to address these concerns.

Participants will become familiar with strategies for improving health equity so that individuals are more empowered to make healthy choices regardless of their living condition, income, sexual orientation or ethnic background.
