How the Pandemic Exacerbated SDoH Barriers for Medicare Advantage Members
Strategies for Effective SDoH Outreach Campaigns in 2022
We all have our own unique life history, our own strengths and our own challenges. The environments where we are born, live, work, learn, play, worship, and age all affect health, well-being, and quality of life. These factors are known as social determinants of health (SDoH) and can be sources of joy and health, or they can contribute to significant health disparities.
