Student Special : Social Determinants of Health & Social Work with Kyla Christensen HealthCare Focus

    • Medicine

In a recent JAMA Review, Dr. Davidson and his colleague Thomas McGinn, MD, MPH, raised this issue: while we know the social determinants of health have an impact on health, the field is still unclear on whose job it is to solve it.  This week, a Jama Poll over twitter asked physicians (presumably) to cast their votes : "Medical school should produce physician scientists, not physician social justice activists".  69% of respondents disagreed.

It is under this backdrop that we welcome Kyla Christensen.  With a background in Social Work, Kyla helps us get a glimpse in the world of social determinants of health, from a discipline that has a long-standing tradition tackling it!
