Rodney E. Rohde on ResearchGate 

Check out this video discussing the 2018Healthology Symposium “where science, practice and social interests meet” providing a culminating focus for faculty, students and community partners to celebrate impactful research and scholarship that affect health outcomes. The event’s theme, “Better Upstream Health, Better Downstream Care,” reflects the needs to explore social determinants of health, the conditions in which people are born, grow, live work and age. It was an honor to be part of the expert panel: “Social Determinants of Health: National Perspective.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cf82mMZv5cc
