2018 HEALTH SUMMIT



Over 140 individuals representing 60 organizations participated in this year's Summit, which explored social determinants and their impact on women's health in Orange County.  Thank you to all of our incredible presenters and to the Sue & Bill Gross School of Nursing, UC Irvine for co-hosting the Summit on the UC Irvine campus.

Social determinants of health (SDOH) are defined by the World Health Organization as the conditions in which people are born, grow, work, live, and age, and are the wider set of forces and systems shaping the conditions of daily life. These forces and systems include economic policies and systems, development agendas, social norms, social policies and political systems.  SDOH are responsible for health inequities – the unfair and avoidable differences in health status within and between communities.  According to the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, SDOH account for 80% of health outcomes (vs. clinical care at 20%).
