Community health is impacted by myriad policy issues including access to care, care coordination, pre- and post-acute service availability, community support service availability, as well as the social determinants of health status such as poverty, housing instability/affordability, food insecurity, lack of physical activity, race/ethnicity, education, health literacy and documentation status. These social determinants can become chronic, co-morbid conditions for our patients.
Support local programs and initiatives that support access, care coordination, and partnerships to address social determinants of health status.
Where there is local support and opportunity, advocate for affordable housing for low income residents.
Manage the local political process of support and funding for local initiatives.
