Societal health is impacted by a range of factors including personal, social, environmental, and economic behaviors and practices. These behaviors and health practices lend themselves to approaches to care that employ interprofessional strategies. Therefore, a guiding framework for this conference is the Social Determinants of Health as defined by the World Health Organization. Social determinants of health can have profound impacts on individuals and communities. The purpose of this Summit is to recognize this nexus of connections in health and provide students, educators, and practitioners with tools needed to improve the health of our communities.
