This blog is dedicated to informing about the health effects that can cause the education inequality.
"Low-income children and children of color alike have less access to high-quality early learning programs, except Head Start (Barnett et al., 2013)."
What are social determinants of health?
“Social determinants of health (SDOH) are the conditions in the environments where people are born, live, learn, work, play, worship, and age that affect a wide range of health, functioning, and quality-of-life outcomes and risks.”
Social determinants of health (SDOH) have a major impact on people’s health, well-being, and quality of life. Examples of SDOH include:
Safe housing, transportation, and neighborhoods
Racism, discrimination, and violence
Education, job opportunities, and income
Access to nutritious foods and physical activity opportunities
Polluted air and water
Language and literacy skills
SDOH also contribute to wide health disparities and inequities
