Environmental Determinants of Health: Fostering Environmental Health Programs in Public Housing Primary Care
A healthy environment is vital to ensure healthy communities and promote well-being for all at all ages. Environmental threats can occur naturally or because of social conditions and ways people live. Addressing Environmental Determinants of Health directly improves the health of populations. Indirectly, it also improves productivity and increases the enjoyment of consumption of goods and services unrelated to health. This webinar will show how chronic respiratory diseases such as asthma and COPD are exacerbated by environmental factors in low-income communities and will provide promising practices and discuss the first national, place-based tool designed to measure cumulative impacts of environmental burden through the lens of environmental justice & health equity.

Learning Objectives:
Discuss the importance of assessing environmental health hazards in low-income communities

Review programs to lessen the impact of environmental triggers in people with asthma and other respiratory conditions

Explore the Environmental Justice Index (EJI), the first national, place-based tool designed to measure cumulative impacts of environmental burden through the lens of environmental justice & health equity.
