AIHC Webinar Series: Social Determinants and the Context of Care: Going Beyond the Obvious for Prevention and Practice

Overview: Recognizing the impact of social determinants broadens the capacities of providers and policy makers to improve the health and wellness of individuals, populations and communities. Using a case scenario, this webinar will provide participants with socioecological and trauma-informed frameworks to better understand individual, interpersonal, interprofessional, community, and policy-level implications of early and enduring adversity and health inequities.


  • Provide frameworks that describe short and long term impacts of trauma and early adversity on health and wellness

  • Illustrate the value and necessity of integrating contextual knowledge into integrated clinical and community health practice

  • Discuss the fundamental roles and perspectives of social work and public health in delivering preventive and effective health practice with individuals and communities
