Who’s Leading the Leading Health Indicators?

Join us on Thursday, July 20, 2017 at 12:00 p.m. ET to learn about progress made toward achieving the Healthy People 2020 Social Determinants Leading Health Indicator. You’ll also hear how Diplomas Now is working to increase high school graduation rates by focusing on chronic absenteeism, behavior, and course performance in school.

About Social Determinants 
Social determinants of health are conditions in the environments in which 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. Our health is determined, in part, by access to social and economic opportunities; the resources and supports available in our homes, neighborhoods, and communities; the quality of our schooling; the safety of our workplaces; the cleanliness of our water, food, and air; and the nature of our social interactions and relationships. Social determinants are often a strong predictor of health disparities—so it’s important to recognize the impact that social determinants have on health outcomes of specific populations.

About Healthy People 2020 Leading Health Indicators 
The Leading Health Indicators (LHIs) represent a smaller set of Healthy People 2020 objectives selected to communicate high-priority health issues and actions to help address them. LHIs are used to assess the health of the Nation, facilitate collaboration across sectors, and motivate action to improve the health of the U.S. population.
