In 2010, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation issued a report with this essential line: “Scientists have found that the conditions in which we live and work have an enormous impact on our health—long before we ever see a doctor.”

 

“The conditions in which we live and work …” In Baltimore, these conditions are often bleak—often deplorable. These are the conditions that perpetuate yawning gaps in health care access and efficacy and in large-scale community health outcomes.

 

In this talk, Dr. Perman will address the social determinants of health—education, economic stability, personal and public safety, housing and transportation, social supports and cohesion. He’ll discuss how anchor institutions—like the University of Maryland, Baltimore—can help remediate the grave disparities we see in the health of populations.
