AHA Logo (June 19, 2020) – The COVID pandemic has illuminated disparities in health outcomes. Addressing social determinants of health such as housing, access to healthy foods, transportation and other factors is more important than ever. The American Hospital Association has developed resources for hospital trustees regarding social determinants of health. Included are a video series with an issue brief that focus on the importance of understanding the social factors in your community that affect health for all. They also provide ideas and examples of how hospitals can address social determinants of health.
