Health care systems, researchers, and policy makers have dramatically increased attention to theimportance of social determinants of health. However, there remains a lack of clarity surrounding themost effective, community-centered pathways toward population health improvement. Drawing onbioecological developmental systems theory, Dr. Perzynski will review how individual and structuralfactors coalesce to differentiate and determine health and social outcomes for older adults.
