These summer institute workshops at Emory University give participants opportunities to gain the foundational knowledge and applied skills needed to study and intervene in the social determinants of health. According to Healthy People 2020, the social determinants of health are "conditions in the environments in which people are born, live, learn, work, play, worship, and age that affect a wide range of health, functioning, and quality-of-life outcomes and risks." Addressing these social determinants is vital to eliminating health inequities.
The three on-campus courses for 2019:
- MAY 20-23: Multilevel thinking and analysis of the social determinants of health
- MAY 28-30: Qualitative data analysis (in partnership with QUAL-WORKS)
- JUNE 3-6: Group randomized trials to address the social determinants of health
