Program 2: Benefits Programming for Social Determinants of Health in COVID and Beyond
April 7, 2021 | 12:00 - 2:00 pm

COVID-19 has been difficult in many ways but even more so for vulnerable populations. That’s due in part to what has been described as systemic social disparities, inequities and gaps in critical structures the pandemic has exposed. The US health care delivery system is no exception, resulting in inequitable patient care and demanding immediate overarching change. What’s an employer to do so that benefit plans address these realities?

Attend this program to:

  • Understand the Social Determinants of Health, why they matter, and how to address them in your benefit plans.

  • Learn how the pandemic further highlights social disparities and why leaders, organizations, key stakeholders and the health care system must understand that addressing SDoH is both socially responsible and supportive of business strategy.
Don't miss this opportunity to hear from industry thought leaders and your peers about how to transition from conceptual discussion to action plans!
