Social Determinants of Health
To better understand what residents identify as priorities, challenges, and opportunities for creating healthier communities, CFMC implemented a countywide survey and outreach initiative in 2019, exploring the Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) that affect health outcomes in Morgan County.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention defines SDOH as “conditions in the places where people live, learn, work, and play,” which “affect a wide range of health risks and outcomes.” By learning more about how Morgan County residents experience each of these factors in their daily lives, CFMC can establish informed program priorities and baseline metrics to guide community development initiatives.
At the links below, you can learn more about each category, and access survey findings, additional data, and relevant CFMC objectives, initiatives, and partners. These links will be regularly updated to provide additional program highlights and resources as they become available.
With this rich understanding of the factors that affect Morgan County health and resiliency, CFMC will be able to ensure that the foundation’s programs, funding, and advocacy are aligned with real problems, and providing real solutions, at both the county and community levels.
