The Millicent Geare Edmunds Lecture
The Impact of Social Determinants on the Health and Well-Being of Baltimore’s Communities
Oct. 26, 2018 at 3 p.m.
University of Maryland School of Nursing
Auditorium, Room 130
Leana S. Wen, MD, MSc, FAAEM
Commissioner, Baltimore City Health Department
While 97 percent of health care costs are spent on care delivered in hospitals, only 10 percent of what determines life expectancy takes place within the four walls of a clinic. Where we live, work, and play drives health and well-being. Dr. Wen will outline the Baltimore City Health Department's innovative blueprint for combating health inequities and improving the well-being of all residents.
