What: The Root Cause Coalition's First Annual Summit on the Social Determinants of Health
When: December 5-6, 2016
Where: The Drake Hotel, Chicago, IL (A limited block of rooms have been reserved for Summit Attendees, to reserve a room please click here or call (312)787-2200)
Who: Healthcare leaders, clinicians, community groups, faith-based organizations, and anyone interested in engaging with thought leaders on dynamic approaches to addressing the social determinants of health.
There are clear associations between social determinants - like a lack of safe and affordable housing, food insecurity, quality education, transportation, economic opportunity, and isolation - and poor health status among children, adults, and seniors. The core goal of this first summit - and of The Root Cause Coalition more broadly - is to more fully engage the healthcare industry in the discussion of social determinants of health, and ultimately, in the development and implementation of data-driven, community-centered solutions to prevent long-term chronic health conditions in the populations that we serve.
Our robust two-day agenda will bring together representatives from healthcare, the faith community, researchers, clinicians, the non-profit sector, and government programs to share best practices, offer community connections and resources, and engage in the crucial discussion of addressing the social determinants of health.
The 1st National Summit on the Social Determinants of Health would not be possible if it was not for the generous support of our sponsors.
