Show Notes

Key living conditions such as safe housing, transportation, violence, access to nutritious foods, and polluted water all have a profound impact on our health outcomes. Dr. Zinzi Bailey explains what social determinants of health are and how they shape the landscape of our health journey. How are the social systems of racism, classism, heterosexism, and ableism driving the pattern and distribution of living conditions? Listen as Dr. Bailey challenges us to break the preconceived notions that we have created that connect these inequities to poorer health outcomes.
