Refocusing on Social Determinants of Health to Strength Client Impact
Increasingly, social determinants of health have been recognized as critical to the health of vulnerable populations. Senior nutrition programs have a long history of addressing non-medical needs for community-dwelling older adults, and are thus well-positioned to provide the nutritional, social, and environmental services that mitigate the health challenges that affect this population.
Join the National Resource Center on Nutrition and Aging (NRCNA) for this Pre-Conference Intensive Workshop that will (re)introduce you to the social determinants of health framework and how you can utilize this knowledge to demonstrate the added value of the services you offer.
This intensive workshop is not only for senior nutrition providers but the whole network of aging services providers.
