How much should the healthcare sector be involved in addressing adverse social circumstances? Join us on February 28th at 9am ET/12pm PT for a conversation with Drs. Seth Berkowitz, Sherry Glied, and Stacy Lindau as they discuss where to draw boundaries for the healthcare sector’s investments in social drivers of health.

Multi-Sectoral Preventive Interventions Research Network to Address Social Determinants of Health in Populations that Experience Health Disparities
The NIH is seeking applications for a new collaborative research network to test multi-sectoral preventive interventions for health conditions in populations that experience health disparities (PAR-24-053), along with a coordinating center (RFA-OD-24-006). Applications for both funding opportunities are due August 5, 2024.
Evidence for Action (E4A): Indigenous-Led Solutions to Advance Health Equity and Wellbeing

The Camden Coalition Care Management Program Improved Intermediate Care Coordination: A Randomized Controlled Trial Finkelstein A, Cantor JC, Gubb J, et al. | Health Affairs
This re-analysis of data from the Camden hotspotting RCT found that the Camden care management program increased the % of patients with an ambulatory care visit within 14 days of discharge. This suggests that care coordination alone may be insufficient to reduce readmissions for patients with high rates of hospital admissions and medically and socially complex conditions.
