About the Social Determinants of Health Initiative

The Social Determinants of Health Initiative promotes community-engaged research, education, and action to identify, understand, and address social determinants of health and increase health equity.

The initiative consists of an inter-disciplinary group of academic and community partners from PSU, OHSU, state and local agencies, community organizations, and local health systems. See our History, Leadership, and Members pages for more information. Initiative members have expertise in multiple aspects of social determinants of health and are engaged in a wide range of research projects. Current Initiative activities include providing collaboration support and mentorship, offering a weekly Research in Progress Session and other networking and educational events, providing weekly announcements about funding and training opportunities, and helping launch new community-engaged research projects.
