S23--U&C-CLIN-NRS: The Social Determinants of Health in CF Care

Nov 2, 2019 2:05pm ‐ Nov 2, 2019 3:50pm


Social determinants of health (SDOH) are increasingly being recognized by health care systems, institutions, and payers as significant drivers of health outcomes. This symposium sets the foundation for understanding SDOH broadly and how they affect people with CF. It also explores how the financial impact of living with CF may exacerbate SDOH and how food insecurity can be a starting point for clinicians in helping to address SDOH.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define how social determinants of health impact the lives, health, and disease-related outcomes in people with chronic disease in the US.
  • Assess about the impact of Social Determinants of Health on people with CF.
  • Examine the financial burden of living with CF.

Symposium Chair(s):

  • Anne Willis, M.A., Sr Dir, Patient Access Programs (Compass)
  • Erin Crowley, M.D., M.Sc., Assistant Professor, Indiana University School of Medicine
