SDOH Academy Innovations Showcase Competition: Helping Health Centers Build Healthier Communities (2022)
The Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) Academy is a HRSA-funded collaboration of multiple National Training and Technical Assistance Partners (NTTAPs) working together to offer a coordinated learning approach on multiple community-based SDOH interventions. The SDOH Academy invites staff of Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs), FQHC look-alikes, Primary Care Associations (PCAs), and other organizations working in partnership with health centers to participate in the 2022 SDOH Academy Innovations Showcase Competition: Helping Health Centers Build Healthier Communities.
The entire experience is structured to spark and/or advance innovations that support the role of health centers in creating both individual and systemic changes that address SDOH factors and improve the health of their communities!
