Fall Learning Series

Our ability to thrive depends on having a consistent set of vital conditions, such as clean air, fair pay, humane housing, early education, routine health care, and other necessities.  These vital conditions, or social determinants of health, persist over generations, shaping the exposures, choices, opportunities and adversities that we each encounter throughout our lives. Each session in this learning series will offer a conversation among national and regional experts, discussing what it will take to address and expand the vital conditions we all need in order to thrive. 

This three-part learning series will introduce selected vital conditions from Thriving Together: A Springboard for Recovery and Resilience in Communities Across America: two components of basic needs for health and safety– Food, and Mental Health & Well Being. Complementary resources for each session can be found here.

This series is open to all partners and community members interested in working toward healthier communities and wellbeing for everyone. 
A note to ACH Implementation Partners: We strongly encourage your participation as part of our shared equity learning journey.
