Achieving Social Determinants of Health Goals through Capital Expansion

The Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) can be a powerful framework to help health centers become an integral part of a community that sets the foundation for health.  The importance of access to health care is only one dimension of SDOH, which also includes safe and affordable housing, economic opportunity, access to fresh foods, access to exercise, and educational opportunity among other community attributes. Health centers are increasingly addressing SDOH through their capital projects, such as co-located health and housing units, community gardens, gyms, and building space for financial counseling. This session will define the Social Determinants of Health, explore how to determine where community gaps are within a service area, and provide lessons learned on developing partnerships to address SDOH, drawing from our Capital Expansion for Health and Housing Partnerships learning collaborative.
