Cancer Classroom Webinar: The Social Determinants of HealthAs part of the Cancer Classroom Series, NCI will offer a webinar titled "Social Determinants of Health: Implications for Cancer Control" on June 5, 2:00–3:00 p.m. ET.
Dr. Shobha Srinivasan will provide an overview of the complex social structures and economic systems that are responsible for most health inequalities, their influence on cancer, and implications for cancer control. These social structures and economic systems include the social and physical environment, health services, and structural and societal factors.
At the end of the presentation, participants will be able to
- identify factors related to social determinants of health;
- describe the relationship between social determinants of health and health inequalities;
- discuss how social determinants of health may influence cancer and cancer control; and
- identify NCI resources for cancer screening, education, and outreach.
