Social determinants of health are socio-economic factors, such as education and ZIP code, that can drastically influence and shape health outcomes. Addressing these issues is imperative to improving health and wellness, as well as reducing disparities in care.

Registration is open for the June 18 Care Transitions – Key to Population Health statewide summit hosted by the MHA Keystone Center and MPRO, as part of the Lake Superior Quality Innovation Network.

The full-day interactive event will take place at the VisTaTech Center – Schoolcraft College, Livonia. Bruce Spurlock, MD, executive director, California-based Cynosure Health, will serve as the keynote speaker for the summit, which will address the importance of community partnership networks and how collaborative relationships can help tackle complex public health issues related to social determinants of health.

The statewide summit will encourage healthcare professionals across the continuum of care to work together to evoke change and improve outcomes, as well as identify common barriers and root causes that adversely impact specific populations.

A registration fee of $60 is available on or before May 17; after May 17, registration is $80. Educational credit opportunities have been requested. For more information, contact the MHA Keystone Center.
