Utah Health Disparities and Social Determinants

The March Utah Health Status Update focuses on health disparities and the social determinants of health.  Nationally, more and more public health efforts are looking at ways to address social determinants.  This short article is a good starting point for understanding social determinants and their relationship to health disparities.

It is also the first Utah Department of Health report to utilize an innovative graphing strategy introduced to the Utah Department of Health by Dr. M. Lelinneth B. Novilla and the Social Determinants of Health Research Team at Brigham Young University.

See the Utah Health Status Update at http://health.utah.gov/opha/publications/hsu/1303_HealthDisp.pdf  You can find this and other Utah Health Status Updates related to health disparities at: http://health.utah.gov/disparities/data.html#HSU
