A National Academy of Medicine committee today proposed a framework and conceptual model for educating health professionals in the U.S. and abroad to address the social determinants of health. The committee recommends using the framework and model to help stakeholder groups “envision ways in which organizations, education and communities can come together to address health inequalities.” The report defines the social determinants of health as “the conditions in which people are born, grow, work, live and age, including the health care system.”
