EBHPP Capitol Briefing: The Other Half of Health: How Where We Live, Work and Play Affects Our Well-being (Part III: Education)

October 3, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Our health is not just driven by what happens in a doctor’s office, or by our habits and behaviors, but also by the conditions in which we live, grow, work, and learn. Collectively these are called social and environmental determinants of health, and include education, income, employment, family and social support, community safety, air and water quality, and housing and transit.

Join us for the third in a series of Capitol Briefings that address how each of those factors impact health. The first session dealt with family and social support; the second session looked at housing. The next in the series will address education, and include presentations on initiatives to address mental and behavioral health needs in rural schools, research and implementation of community school models, and tribal education initiatives and culturally-competent evaluation strategies.
