Green Clock Hours: 0.75

The physical environment in which individuals live has a direct impact on their health and wellness and on their ability to access healthcare. Healthy People 2020 identifies neighborhoods and the built environment as a pillar of the social determinants of health tied to health outcomes. This course provides an in-depth analysis of this pillar and how it affects the health and well-being of patient populations. You will learn about four components: access to healthy foods, quality of housing, crime and violence, and environmental conditions. You will also learn how to leverage this knowledge as a health care practitioner to improve treatment planning for your patients and, ultimately, their health outcomes. This course is the fifth in a five-part series of courses on the social determinants of health.
