Culture of Health Program


Project Scope:

Individual health is shaped by many economic and social factors such as income, education, access to high-quality health care, geography, and race and ethnicity. Uneven access to conditions that are needed for good health across the United States has been well documented, as have the poor effects on health that result — not only for individuals but also for their families and society.

The National Academy of Medicine’s Culture of Health Program, funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, is a multiyear collaborative effort to identify strategies to create and sustain conditions that support equitable good health for everyone in America. Since launching, the program released a consensus study on how communities can promote health equity in their local settings, launched three additional consensus studies, held a nationwide community art project, developed a community documentary series, and traveled the country to learn how communities are promoting health equity on the ground. Upcoming activities and tools include an art project inspired by young leaders across the nation, an online resource hub, and additional public workshops.

Description :   

The National Academies report Communities in Action: Pathways to Health Equity identified 9 social determinants of health and how these determinants impact our health and the health of our communities. The report also defined  health equity as the state in which everyone has the opportunity to attain full health potential and no one is disadvantaged from achieving this potential because of social position or any other socially defined circumstance.

Health equity is crucial and health inequity is costly. All actors in society—residents and community-based organizations, in partnership with businesses, state and local government, anchor and faith-based institutions—have the power to change the narrative and help promote health equity. But where and how can communities begin to unpack the social determinants of health in order to achieve health equity?

Join the NAM  for a one hour webinar where field leaders will explore the meanings of both social determinants of health and health equity and what it means to apply these terms to enact change in the real world.

Webinar Objectives

  1. Discuss how public health officials and others working in communities conceptualize the terms social determinants of health and health equity and how this knowledge is applied to their work.
  2. Explore the Bay Area Regional Health Inequities Initiative’s (BARHII) Framework for Reducing Health Inequities and the Initiative’s approaches to working with partners to create healthy communities.
  3. Provide an overarching perspective of how communities are addressing the social determinants of health and health equity while highlighting the City Heights neighborhood of San Diego, California. 

     

Audience Q&A will give webinar attendees the opportunity to engage with the webinar speakers.
