News and Events

Association of Academic Health Centers and the Social Determinants of Health: A Toolkit for Collaboration. Medical care accounts for less than 25% of a population’s health status. Other factors, including genetics, social circumstances, environmental conditions, and behavior, have significantly more impact on health. Academic health centers are recognizing that they are uniquely positioned to have a significant and positive impact on the determinants of health and the health of their communities. AAHC is interested in broadening the view of academic health center leadership from focusing just on health care to improving health, addressing real and perceived barriers to this culture change and translating the isolated local successes of some academic health centers into a nation-wide movement.

Students Help Area Refugees Stay Healthy UofL nursing students are helping refugees in Louisville stay healthy. They and other students and faculty from the Schools of Nursing, Medicine and Public Health & Information Sciences provided project oversight and gave vaccinations at the Catholic Charities offices on Market Street to refugees working toward citizenship.
