    Social determinants of health: Important insights to help close gaps and improve care

    We all want to live longer and healthier lives. But the question everyone has is, what makes us healthy and unhealthy? We know about certain lifestyle choices – like diet and exercise – but are there other factors? Things like where you live, your income, level of education, race and gender could affect your risk for developing chronic conditions such as heart disease or diabetes. These factors, called the social determinants of health, have been defined as the environmental conditions in which people are born, grow, live and age.

    During this one-hour, interactive webinar, we'll examine the correlation between social and economic status and health disparities. Leading our discussion is Trent Haywood, M.D., J.D. Dr. Haywood is the president of Blue Cross Blue Shield Institute and senior vice president and chief medical officer of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association. He will share his expertise on social determinants of health and how insights with this data, along with business innovation and technology, can identify care gaps and help create solutions for improved overall health.
