From the Congressional SDOH Caucus:
The Congressional Social Determinants of Health Caucus is seeking public feedback on challenges and opportunities related to social determinants of health.
Congressional responsibility for programs to address SDOH is divided among many Committees, while programs addressing health and social needs are splintered across multiple federal agencies. As such, we have convened the bipartisan Congressional Social Determinants of Health Caucus to bring together members of Congress from disparate jurisdictions to highlight the opportunities for coordination across programs, to improve health outcomes, and to maximize existing and future federal investments in health, food, housing, transportation, and other important drivers of health. Leadership is needed to break down the barriers that impede better coordination between health and social services programs.
Please share feedback to the questions included in this form on challenges and opportunities, which will be shared with SDOH Caucus co-chairs. For more information, please contact Liam Steadman in Congresswoman Cheri Bustos’ office at Liam.Steadman@mail.house.gov, Caitlin Van Sant in Congressman G.K. Butterfield’s office at Caitlin.VanSant@mail.house.gov, Shane Hand in Congressman Tom Cole’s office at Shane.Hand@mail.house.gov, or Kaitlynn Skoog in Congressman Markwayne Mullin’s office at Kaitlynn.Skoog@mail.house.gov.
Submissions are due by September 21, 2021.
