Who we are: Research suggests that multiple complex social determinants play a large role in health. Health professional education, therefore, should prepare learners to both understand and meet the needs of our evolving communities and populations. Our curricular interventions have the following objectives:
- To teach learners the complexity and impact of community and other social determinants of health and
- To demonstrate ways to connect community/ public service and advocacy with their clinical and academic work through a combinations of didactic, experiential, and direct service activities.
Target Audience: The UHI engages and teaches learners from across healthcare, academia, and communities around concepts critical to our mission of advancing equity in health and well-being.
