The effect of COVID-19 on social determinants of health – Part 1

Social determinants of health (SDoH) are those factors in a person’s life—socioeconomic, educational, cultural, environmental—that create disparities in how that person accesses health care. On this episode, we examine how the COVID-19 outbreak has affected social determinants of health and impacted racial and ethnic minorities that already carry a disproportionate burden of morbidity and mortality.
