August 8 – Getting Out of the Box: A Non-Traditional Approach to Health Improvement

  • There are many social determinants to poor health with poverty being number one. The lack of healthy food, health insurance and preventive and primary care along with unsafe places to exercise are key contributors to the growing poor health in rural and urban communities. These challenges cannot be addressed within the confines of the traditional health system. In this webinar, presenters will talk about the breadth of this issue especially in rural and urban areas, and will discuss the innovative approaches they have taken to tackle this growing health challenge.
