Zip Code Matters:

Social Determinants of Health and the Roadmap to Health Equity

Join Us on FEBRUARY 10, 2020
From 12:30-2 p.m.

Join Americares via livestream to hear from national experts on the impact of social determinants of health – the conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work and age.

These determinants strongly correlate with the health status of a given community, so much so that we now believe that your zip code matters even more than your genetic code in predicting your health. 

We will discuss the Roadmap to Health Equity, an innovative initiative led by Americares, Loyola University, the National Association of Free and Charitable Clinics, and free and charitable clinic stakeholders across the country. This national effort will help demonstrate and elevate quality of care and lay the foundation for addressing health inequities impacting our most vulnerable patient populations.
