Annotation

Social determinants of health are defined by the World Health Organization as "the conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work, and age". For rural populations, many of these elements are less favorable than within urban areas. Building on work conducted by the Rural and Minority Health Research Center, this presentation reviews some of the key elements associated with health across rural White and minority populations, such as education, income, and health facility availability.

Learning Objectives

• Learn to define key terms around SDOH and rural ameria
