The Role of Social Determinants of Health: Perspectives from the Healthcare Side
Hosted by the National Resource Center on Nutrition and Aging
Over the last few years, the healthcare environment has provided the aging network and senior nutrition programs with new opportunities for engagement with healthcare payers that support positive health outcomes. There is growing recognition of the impact of social determinants on health and well-being, which gives senior nutrition programs more leverage with healthcare entities to better support seniors with complex needs and bridge the gap between clinical and community services. Challenges such as malnutrition, social isolation, transportation and home safety are increasingly being identified as key risks to a senior’s continued independence. Led by subject matter experts and fellow programs, this webinar will focus on leveraging emerging opportunities and overcoming barriers to integration. It is easy to see the potential in creating a better system of health that addresses the needs of the whole-person through integration of the health and social sectors. However, it is not so easy to move beyond recognition and ideas to implementation, as designing and creating a partnership with other organizations across sectors is a complex process. Hear about the potential of partnerships and the incentives that are aligning to accelerate this work.

- Identify the role of senior nutrition programs in the broader community-based approaches that address the social determinants of health
