Webinar 1 – Social Determinants of Health 101 for Community-Facing Staff
Darlene Jenkins, DrPH, MPH, CHES, National Health Care for the Homeless Council and Roni Morales, Mountain Family Health Centers

Event Overview: Health starts in homes, schools, workplaces, neighborhoods, and communities through the social determinants of health (SDOH). The World Health Organization (WHO) defines the social determinants of health as “the conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work, and age. These circumstances are shaped by the distribution of money, power, and resources at global, national, and local levels.” The social determinants of health are primarily responsible for health disparities, which WHO defines as “unfair and avoidable differences in health status.” This webinar will present an introduction to the social determinants of health for community-facing staff and offer some strategies for these staff to address them from their positions at health centers.

Webinar 3 – Self-Care: Building Resiliency and Burnout Prevention
Sonia Lee and Kristina Wharton, Health Outreach Partners (HOP)

As a result, outreach workers take on many roles, which can leave them susceptible to burnout. Also, being witness to the struggles of their communities can take its toll. It is important to promote and implement self-care practices within the workplace in order to recruit and retain staff, as well as foster a safe and healthy work environment that prioritizes the well-being of employees. In this webinar, Health Outreach Partners (HOP) will provide an overview of self-care and explore effective self-care strategies for outreach and enrollment staff.
