Description

Philadelphia Public Health Grand Rounds: Access to Primary Care in Philadelphia: Scope of the Problem, Identifying Solutions

Topic: Access to Primary Care in Philadelphia: Scope of the Problem, Identifying Solutions


ABOUT the Event:

Multiple reports have demonstrated that having a regular source of primary care enhances receipt of prevent care services and improves health outcomes. However, many factors may affect access to primary care, including health insurance; work, family, and school commitments; difficulties traveling to primary care facilities; lack of primary care providers; and lack of knowledge about the health care system. Social determinants of health, including race/ethnicity, also are associated with disparities in receipt of primary care. This Public Health Grand Rounds will explore barriers to accessing primary care in the Philadelphia area and examine solutions to improve access to care among underserved populations.
