Understanding the environments and social context that can influence health can be pivotal in supporting older adults as they age. In a concerted effort to address disparities and inequities, Healthy People 2030 contains many objectives that are focused on the social determinants of health. One of the goals in particular is to “Create social, physical, and economic environments that promote attaining the full potential for health and well-being for all.”
The February AFPHS Training focused on the Department of Health and Human Service’s programming and resources that support healthy aging. Some key objectives included in Healthy People 2030 related to older adults were highlighted. TFAH is delighted to host the Deputy Director of the HHS Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, Carter Blakey, as our speaker.
