Social Determinants that Influence Emergency Preparedness | Feb 11

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, racial, ethnic, and cultural diversity in the City of Boston is on the rise. This course will provide an overview of the social determinants of health and vulnerability that influence differences in health status throughout Boston neighborhoods and shape health outcomes after emergencies.

Participants will learn how health inequities amongst communities lead to a disproportionate exposure and impact from emergencies. Boston MRC members and the general public will be equipped with the knowledge needed to understand the needs of diverse communities while supporting response and recovery operations in the City of Boston after an emergency.
