Determinants of Health 360: Social, Commercial, and Legal Considerations for Preventing Substance Misuse
January 20 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Risky behaviors such as substance misuse don’t occur in a vacuum–the environments in which we live, work, and play influence our choices and behaviors. Exploring Social, Commercial and Legal Determinants of Health (DOH) can help us consider new ways to impact these environments to prevent substance misuse. This expert panel presentation will discuss ways communities, commerce, and legal systems contribute to substance misuse and how prevention practitioners can support positive DOH to create health and wellness throughout their communities. Bring your questions and experiences, as the panel presentation will conclude with a question and answer/discussion session.
By the end of the panel presentation, participants will be able to:
- Describe the concepts of Social, Commercial, and Legal DOH
- Name at least one way each can contribute to substance misuse
- Name two strategies prevention practitioners can use to support positive DOH
