Public Health 3.0:

Stacking Hands to Improve the

Social Determinants of Health

Doug Wolf

Director of Strategic Initiatives

Boys & Girls Clubs of Columbus

Member, HOSA-100 National

Advisory Council

Solutions to our population’s health do not solely reside in clinics and labs,

but in our communities. Your zip code is a better predictor of your health

outcomes than your genetic code. Traditional approaches to health care

and public health do little to address factors such as education, housing and

neighborhood safety, referred to as social determinants of health (SDOH).

Public Health 3.0 initiative calls for advances in practice to bring multi-sector

partners together to “stack hands” to address SDOH. This shift requires Future

Health Professionals to consider new competencies and collaboration with

non-traditional public and private sector partners. This workshop will provide

public health and SDOH status and how Public Health 3.0 addresses issues,

competency, and practice considerations for HOSA-Future Health Professionals.
