Thank you for attending Live, Work, Play: Social Determinants of Health, sponsored by Children’s Mercy and the Health Care Foundation. Check out the event photos here! 


Conditions in places where people live, work and play affect a wide range of health risks and outcomes.  These conditions are known as social determinants of health and differences in health are striking in communities with poor social determinants of health.  A panel of experts will discuss these conditions and the policies and programs for addressing them.
