Dissecting the Political Determinants of Health

An individual’s health status can be strongly impacted by political, economic, an d social factors and despite ongoing efforts the health status of people continues to be unequal. Please join Healthy Start with Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital and keynote speaker Daniel Dawes as we take a closer look at and discuss determinants of health through the political lens and begin to partner, build capacity and create change.
