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.
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.
