The Other Half of Health: 
How Where We Live, Work and Play Affects Our Well-being

 Part III: Education

Our health is not just driven by what happens in a doctor's office, or by our habits and behaviors, but also by the conditions in which we live, grow, work, and learn. Collectively these are called social and environmental determinants of health, and include educationincomeemploymentfamily and social supportcommunity safetyair and water quality, and housing and transit.

Join us for the third in a series of Capitol Briefings that address how each of those factors impact health. The first session  dealt with family and social support; the second session looked at housing. The next in the series will address education, and include presentations on initiatives to address mental and behavioral health needs in rural schools, research and implementation of community school models, and tribal education initiatives and culturally-competent evaluation strategies.

This briefing will be held in collaboration with the Wisconsin Center for Education Research (WCER) at the UW-Madison School of Education
