About this Webinar
We know good health goes beyond medical care and is influenced by economic opportunity, affordable housing, and quality education - all factors that communities can transform. These "social determinants of health" are the focus of this talk, using data and evidence from the County Health Rankings & Roadmaps to learn how to strengthen community efforts to improve health outcomes.
In addition, learn how Carroll County Coalition for Public Health's health partners are mobilizing community-wide approaches to address housing and transportation challenges in order to affect the conditions in which all people can be healthy.
Also hear about Cheshire Medical Center's Prescribe for Health Program that uses provider referrals to Population Health Workers to more effectively connect patients to the community-based supports that will make healthier choices the easier choices, especially for those with chronic disease who are also socio-economically disadvantaged.
