People often talk about health as an individual issue. But social determinants of health (SDOH) show us that some things outside of our control like the safety of our neighborhoods, our stress levels, and even our social support system can have a big impact on our health.
@AllofUsResearch is asking its participants about the conditions in which they are born, grow, live, work, and age.
Listen to astronaut, physician, and author @therealmaejemison explain how studying information on social determinants of health (SDOH) may lead to more effective care for all of us. Want to get involved? You can sign up at JoinAllofUs.org/disability

Join NACCHO's Sentinel Network!
Join over 100 local health departments from more than 40 states participating in NACCHO’s HIV, STI, and Viral Hepatitis Sentinel Network (Sentinel Network). The Sentinel Network is an opportunity to shape national technical assistance and share your local public health perspective while engaging with colleagues nationwide. Members complete brief surveys on an approximately quarterly basis on their HIV, STI, and hepatitis programs, including their activities and services, partnerships, needs, challenges, and successes. Following each survey, Sentinel Network members are invited to discuss findings among their peers at NACCHO-hosted learning events. Sign up here or visit our website for more information. Contact Shalesha Majors ([email protected]) with any questions.
“The whole point of an engaged research approach [i.e., patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR)] is that the end result—both for [public health] practitioners and for the recipients of the research—becomes more relevant and actionable.”
Application of PCOR in local public health practice is very limited, but it is a particularly important source of data to inform population health decisions. With funding from a Eugene Washington PCORI engagement award, NACCHO recently assessed the awareness and use of PCOR among local health departments and their community partners. We found that PCOR can:
✅strengthen programs to effectively address community needs
✅create a collaborative culture between stakeholders
✅promote awareness of local public health in the community
Access new resources to support your local health department’s application of and engagement in PCOR at www.naccho.org/PCOR.

It’s still possible to spread the virus that causes COVID-19, including the Delta variant,
even if you don’t look or feel sick. How does this happen and what does it mean for
infection control in health care? Project Firstline’s Dr. Abby Carlson breaks it down in
The main way that the virus that causes COVID-19, including the Delta variant, spreads between people is through respiratory droplets. That’s why it’s so important to keep wearing a mask or other source control when working in a healthcare facility. Project Firstline’s Dr. Abby Carlson explains more in the video.
The Delta variant spreads more easily than other variants of the virus that cause COVID-19, but the recommended infection control actions for health care still work! Watch as Project Firstline’s Dr. Abby Carlson explains what actions you can take to help keep yourself and your patients safe.
