Using policy, systems and environmental community work, how do we get people to make healthy choices if they have not experienced or lived the healthy choice journey? The healthy choice path includes seeing, touching, feeling and thinking about real-time food options and access.
This session will:
• Communicate an understanding of the Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) as factors in a person's life; the conditions where a person lives, learns and works impact the health risks and behavior outcomes in the communities we serve.
• Introduce the conversation about money and its emotional impact on lives, along with how we work with people.
• Discuss food access in a few Missouri communities using the Double Up Food Bucks Project link with a community assets mapping project.
