Building capacity around navigating complex social determinants of health

  • 25 Sep 2018

CTC hosted a training with the Medical Legal Partnership of Boston (MLBP) on September 21. The training, entitled “Social Determinants of Health - Moving from What and Why to How! offered Community Health Team (CHT) staff and other community health workers an overview of some of the social factors affecting people’s health and well-being. Jeannine Casselman, Esq. from MLBP offered guidance and resources for staff as they work with low-income patients to meet basic needs for food, housing and utilities, education and employment, health care, and personal and family stability and safety.  CTC will continue to work with MLBP on ways to enhance the skills of CHT staff working with clients on complex social issues.
