PHA Releases First in a Series of SDOH Issue Briefs
PHA is proud to announce the release of ”Taking Stock: Historical Context and How the Pandemic Is Changing the Face of Social Determinants of Health and Health Equity,” the first chapter in our brand new “Health of Populations and Social Determinants of Health” series to be released individually over the next few months. Other issue briefs in this series will be on such topics as: Health Equity, Behavioral Health, Innovative Approaches to Care Management, and other pertinent subjects. This first thoughtful and in-depth paper was written by Board Member, Mary Jane Osmick, MD, a board-certified internal medicine physician executive with extensive experience leading organizations in health care delivery. This initiative of PHA’s Quality and Research Committee started November 1st, with the rerelease of “Taking Action on Social Determinants of Health and Health Disparities,“ a well-received whitepaper distributed to the membership and the partner community in March of 2018.
