Social Determinants of Health Explainer

YouTube video

This video was created for all ages to be an introductory exposure to the concepts of social determinants of health. We were inspired to make this so people could have a better of understanding of how differing environments can influence peoples’ health. For example, why some groups have a higher rate of certain diseases than others. Thank you for watching!
