“Much of what impacts health is beyond what most of us think about when we think about healthcare. The social determinants of health play such a big role. I think if we can begin to address those environmental, behavioral and societal issues that ultimately present themselves as health problems, we will go a long way to addressing the problems of access, affordability and resilience.”
