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.

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!
