Health Equity and Social Determinants of Health

Census data* reveals that the Hispanic or Latino population grew from 50.5 million (16.3% of the U.S. population) in 2010 to 62.1 million (18.7%) in 2020 – that is about 1 in 6; and demographers predict that by 2030, the population will reach about 106 million – or more than 1 in 5 US residents.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services defines Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) as “the conditions in the environments where people are born, live, learn, work, play, worship, and age that affect a wide range of health, functioning, and quality-of-life outcomes and risks.” Because SDOH also contributes to wide health disparities and inequities, it is a priority area of focus for the Department.


 George Fernandez, CEO, and Founder of The Latino Connection, will join us to discuss Health Equity and SDOH and its impact on Hispanic populations, what healthcare marketing and communications professionals can do to address implicit biases, and more on this important topic.

Presenter: George Fernandez, founder of Latino Connection
