Social Determinants Work Groups

The Community Action Team for Social Determinants has broken into smaller workgroups around the goal areas below. Currently, we are using the Results Based Accountability (RBA) method of Turn-the-Curve thinking, to identify strategies and performance measures that address the root problems causing some of our communities' most widespread health issues. These open meetings are paired with targeted outreach by BHT ACH Staff to key movers-and-shakers of social programs and public forums requesting feedback. Once developed, all strategies will be made available on this site for public review. Please consider joining us at one of our upcoming meetings:
