Health Care Innovators: Addressing Social Determinants of Health

09/24/19     Online and Philadelphia, PA

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.

Featured Speakers:

  • Ezekiel Emanuel, MD, PhD, Vice Provost for Global Initiatives; Chair, Department of Medical Ethics and Health Policy, University of Pennsylvania

  • Katherine Kinsey, PhD, Director, Philadelphia Nurse-Family Partnership

  • Katie McPeak, MD, Medical Director, Health Equity, Primary Care Network, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP)

Additional speakers to be announced.

When: Tuesday, September 24, 2019 - Doors open at 8:00 a.m.

Where: The Liberty View at Independence Visitor Center, 599 Market St. Philadelphia, PA 19106
