The Social Determinants of Health

Proceeds from this year’s Benefit will help us address the social determinants of health in our community, the lifestyle factors - like access to healthy food, language proficiency, housing status, and access to transportation – that influence 60–80 % of a person’s health. Addressing these issues will improve overall health, including longer life expectancy, better health outcomes, and ultimately, improved wellness for our community.
