Kendra Copanas to Speak on Panel on Social Determinants

Our Executive Director, Kendra Copanas, will speak this Saturday, April 14, 2018 at the 22nd Annual St. Louis Association of Community Organizations Regional Neighborhood Conference.  Kendra will speak on a panel about Social Determinants of Health.

Description of the panel:

Why does the U.S. spend more on medical care than any other industrialized nation, yet the U.S. is 26th out of 49 in terms of life expectancy — and falling? Come discover how public health departments in the City of St. Louis and St. Louis County, private hospital systems, and numerous partners are coming together in an unprecedented way to proactively address the root causes of health, or lack of health, to prevent chronic diseases. This session not only discusses the role of social determinants in the production of health and well-being but provides practical examples to assist participants in understanding its link to racial equity. Practices, interventions, and policies that use a racial equity lens to address social determinants are presented and discussed.
