Explored how law and policy can be used to address education as a social determinant of health. This webinar, co-sponsored by the Network and the CDC’s Public Health Law Program, was the first in a series on the Social Determinants of Health and the Law. The webinar touched on the new federal Every Student Succeeds Act as well as emerging legal and policy approaches at the state and local level that provide opportunities for schools and other educational programs to more fully engage with their communities and encourage the development of well-rounded students and citizens.
