New: Focusing on Structural Racism To Address Social Determinants of Health

The concept of social determinants of health (SDOH) focuses on how the conditions that people are born into (and live in) shape their health. Structural racism is a primary driver of these inequities because the situations in which people of color are born and live affect their ability to stay healthy and access healthcare. Therefore all work to improve health by addressing SDOH requires an explicit focus on addressing structural racism and mitigating its impact on patients. This paper will provide examples of how structural racism in housing has affected inequities in SDOH and health outcomes.
