Where you live should not determine if you live

Social determinants of health have a major impact on individual health, well-being, and quality of life. The effects are even more devastating when a child suffers the consequences of poor housing, lack of transportation, food insecurity, racism, discrimination, and violence. Join us for an informative talk about this misunderstood public health issue as we work to create a healthier community and better future for all.
