Social determinants of health — such as socioeconomic status, housing affordability, access to quality food, and public safety — have a huge influence on health outcomes. It is now generally accepted that health care alone is not enough to compensate for a person’s living conditions. Given the specific challenges that the city of Philadelphia faces, many of the city’s doctors, hospitals, health care providers and community groups must experiment with alleviating social conditions for their patients in order to improve care.
Join POLITICO in Philadelphia on Tuesday, September 24, for a deep-dive conversation exploring the innovative approaches in Philadelphia to improve health outcomes among the city's most vulnerable residents.
