You Are Invited!

Please join us for an informative discussion on the importance of improving your clients and employees health literacy!

Social Determinants of Health (SDH) reflect the social factors and physical conditions of the environment in which people live, learn and work, which impact a wide range of health and quality of life outcomes. Community-Based Organizations have an important impact on the health and well-being of not just the people they serve, but their employees and volunteers. Join Erie Niagara AHEC and Millennium Collaborative Care as we discuss ways to improve Social Determinants of Health within the workplace and the community through the lens of health literacy. Participants will leave this forum with an understanding of how Social Determinants impact their organization and the community, as well as strategies to improve health and well-being at the organizational level.
