Data, Social Determinants, and Decision Making: Advancing
Population Health Equity

It is well understood that social factors influence population health.  However, we fall short in acting on the social determinants effectively, in no small part because our measurement of their role lags.  This presentation shall discuss the central role of social determinants to the production of health, and how we can integrate social determinants in comprehensive thinking about population health.  It shall also discuss how this can inform and guide decision-making to the end of improving health.
