Archived Social Determinants Webinar Available Online

Many thanks to Dean Donna Petersen (South Florida) who moderated the November 13 “Accelerating a Social Determinants Model to Build Our Health Ecosystem” webinar, which is now archived here. Dean Petersen, among her many national roles, is chair of the Framing the Future Task Force, convened by ASPPH, which is sponsoring the Thought Leaders in Public Health webinar series. We were privileged and grateful to have two distinguished thought leaders, Dr. Susan C. Scrimshaw, president, The Sage Colleges, and Dr. Nirav R. Shah, commissioner, New York State Department of Health on the webinar panel.  President Scrimshaw framed the topic and Commissioner Shah presented evidence on the kinds of problems in New York State that are responsive to a social determinants approach.
