This webinar introduces the concept of social determinants of health—defined as the conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work, and age—and explains their effects on health status and related behaviors. It provides an overview of relevant research, including a conceptual model developed by the World Health Organization. Designed for health care providers, it will lay the foundation for participants to apply the social determinants of health framework to their clinical practice and other professional activities.


1. Describe the social determinants of health.
2. Explain the World Health Organization’s conceptual model of the social determinants of health.
3. Identify potential pathways shaping individual and group differences in health outcomes seen in clinical practice.
