Your written health care wishes will help provide comfort and peace to your loved ones in making difficult decisions. For more information visit Advance Directives.

  • Resources to Address Social Determinants of Health

    What are Social Determinants of Health (SDoH)?

    These are non-medical factors that affect health and well being and may include conditions in which people are born, grow, work, live, play and pray. Is your medicine too expensive? Do you have a doctor? Do you have a way to get to your appointment? Are you getting your health information in a way you can understand? These are a few examples of the effects of SDoH.

    For assistance locating resources, please visit findhelp.org and 211.

Faith Community Connections
Connections listed here are resources to support communities and help to improve health and well-being. Faith Communities are willing to collaborate with other faith communities to address unmet needs of social determinants of health, which are non-medical factors that influence health outcomes. They are conditions in which people are born, grow, work, live and pray. There are many issues around social determinants of health that are responsible for health inequities.  What challenges do you face?
  • Finance Budget: Is your medicine too expensive?
  • Having health information you can understand.
  • Health Care: Do you have a doctor? Do you have a way to get to your appointment?
  • Where You Live: Are you close to a grocery store? Do you feel safe walking in your neighborhood?
  • Community Relationships: Do you have friends/family support?
