There are many factors that interfere with health equity and the ability of patients to get their health care needs met. For patients with complex lives and complex health needs, these challenges are even more pronounced. These social determinants of health, such as income, education, transportation, housing, and race or ethnicity, have a powerful influence on a patient's life long before they arrive at a hospital or clinic.
The Five Social Determinants of Health identified by Healthy people 2020 are: Education, Economic Stability, Social and Community Context, Neighborhoods and the Built Environment, & Health and Health Care.
The theme for 2017-2018 at the Rodham Institute is “ Building & Strengthening Resilience in our Community.” We want to show examples of how this is being done in our communities and so we are asking you for assistance.
We want individuals or small groups( 2-3 people) to produce 2-5 minute videos about one of the 5 Social Determinants of Health and how they impact you. You can be as creative as you like. 5 videos will be selected and shown at Rodham Institutes annual summit this fall as well as having the winning producers be our guest at the summit. We hope to use all of the videos throughout the year to highlight resilience in the Washington, DC community.
