Providers, health plans and states are growing more aware of the connection between individual, community and social factors and health. Living under constant stress, or in a toxic environment, is a severe detriment to good health. Housing instability, unstable social networks, financial uncertainty, and/or trauma and stress all have an impact. Numerous studies have highlighted that these factors contribute significantly more to an individual’s health and well-being than do health care and genetics. Though many of these needs are common across all populations, the aging population presents with some unique factors when considering how to address these needs.

Community-based organizations and managed care plans are individually and in partnership implementing a broad range of strategies to address these personal and social needs of older adults. During this presentation, UnitedHealthcare and AARP will lead a discussion on how a future focus on personal determinants of health can help individuals age strong and how cross-sector partnerships can effectively serving the needs of our growing aging population.

Participants in this webinar will be able to:

  • Gain a deeper understanding of the personal determinants of health unique to older adults
  • Learn about how current practice supports the integration of social services and health care for the aging population and what opportunities exist to further support this work
  • Hear about examples of efforts to address the personal determinants of health of older adults through a partnership between a health plan and a community-based organization
