SDoH Affinity Group

Studying Communities, Envisioning Care

The Social Determinants of Health (SDoH) Affinity Group empowers 40+ Chief Community Health Officers and other executives accountable for SDoH activities to collaborate on approach, program development, and structures defining Community Health for their organizations.

Via Dialogue calls and in-person and virtual Summits, the SI SDoH Affinity Group offers leaders a forum to innovate and share solutions that ensure the practice of medicine is inclusive and widespread. Plus, if you want to know what your peers are doing and thinking right now, join SI’s SDoH Affinity Group MS Teams Site to facilitate ongoing, ad hoc, open discussion and collaboration among the SDoH peer group.


Dialogues – Invitation-only

These 1-hour, peer-led Zoom meetings are by invitation-only, with recaps distributed to affinity group members via MS Teams. To guest-lead/host a Dialogue on a topic of interest, contact Cynthia Schroers. Some hosts share background materials to support discussion; just ask for samples.
