Past Training – July 2022 AFPHS Training – Using Data to Address Social Determinants of Health
Data systems that include information on the health of older adults are crucial to developing programs and services that meet their health and social needs. Organizations and agencies can use this information to target resources, identify community partners, support grant applications, and develop strategies to address health disparities and social needs in their communities.
The July training focused on the importance of data in addressing social determinants of health among older adults. This session also highlighted how some states have developed and used data on older adults to advance healthy aging in their communities.
