July is SDOH Awareness Month!

Social determinants of health (SDOH) are the nonmedical factors that influence health outcomes. They are the conditions in which people are born, grow, work, live, and age, and the wider set of forces and systems shaping the conditions of daily life. These forces and systems include economic policies and systems, development agendas, social norms, social policies, racism, climate change, and political systems.

SDOH can be grouped into 5 domains:
– Economic Stability
– Education Access & Quality
– Health Care Access & Quality
– Neighborhood and Build Environment
– Social and Community Context
