At SWCAHEC, we work to develop inter-professional relationships that both celebrate the unique skill and knowledge of health professionals and emphasize their commonalities. In this way we help to develop the clinical/community linkages that help address health disparities and increase wellness.
Clinical/Community Linkages help address the Social Determinants of Health. According to the CDC, the Social Determinants of Health are the “non-medical factors that influence health outcomes. They are the conditions in which people are born, grow, work, live and age. These forces include economic policies and systems, development agendas, social norms and policies, racism, climate change and political systems.
