Social determinants of health
Customizing patient care
Our work in health care is only part of what contributes to overall health. Social Determinants of Health (SDoH)—people’s education, employment, finances, legal status, literacy skills, English fluency, transportation, housing, and, most importantly, their neighborhood—can be just as important. SDoH factors contribute to health disparities in Minnesota; our communities with high SDoH burdens experience higher rates of disease and disabilities.
