In this presentation titled, “There is More to Health than Healthcare,” Dr. Patty Gabow will conduct an in-depth exploration of the components of health and wellbeing: the healthcare system, income, education, environment community, behaviors, and race. We will discuss the performance of the American healthcare system in several relevant domains. We will delineate the data regarding the contribution of each of these components to health and examine how we compare with other HIC in addressing these determinates of health. We will conclude with possible ways forward to improve our performance in these areas.
- Understand the current state of healthcare and health in America
- Understand the many components of health and well-being
- Understand the social determinants of health
- Ways to improve performance in both health and healthcare.
