Advancing Health Equity Through Family Medicine
As the primary providers of health care for America's underserved populations, family physicians see the impact of social determinants of health every day in their practice settings. The AAFP launched The EveryONE Project to promote diversity and address the social determinants of health, in an effort to advance health equity in all communities. This toolkit can help family physicians address social determinants of health in their practices and communities, to improve their patients' lives and help them thrive in a multitude of ways.
Educate your practice team on the impact of this unconscious bias and offer resources to help them reduce negative effects on patients.
Work with your practice team to create a culture of health equity and a team-based approach to address the social determinants of health.
