The Building Blocks to Well-Being: Connections Between Health and Stress
The Minority Health Conference, which is the largest and longest-running student-led health conference in the country, aims to raise awareness around minority health and mobilize students, academics and community members to take action for change. The conference seeks to examine the factors that have created and impacted health inequities across gender, race, economic status and other social determinants of health.
The social determinants of health are the conditions in which people are born, grow, work, live and age, as well as the wider set of forces and systems shaping the conditions of daily life that impact health outcomes (Healthy People 2030).
One of the primary methods by which these factors influence health is through the mental and physical stress they can place on individuals and communities—with intergenerational life cycle impacts. This year's conference will explore the social determinants of health, the stress they can cause, and their impacts on the short and long-term well-being of minority communities.
