WHAT WE DO
Addressing the Social Determinants of Health
Health starts in our homes, schools, workplaces, neighborhoods, and communities. NTCC is addressing issues that affect the health of our community simultaneously.
Examples of the Social Determinants of Health include:
Availability of resources to meet daily needs (e.g., safety, quality housing and local food markets)
Access to equitable education offerings, economic, and job opportunities
Access to health care services
Social norms and attitudes (e.g., discrimination, racism, and distrust of government)
Exposure to crime, violence, and social disorder
Opportunities for recreational and leisure-time activities
