Established in 2019 at the University of Michigan School of Public Health, the Social Care in Chronic Disease Collaborative advances the science on addressing social context in chronic disease management.
Towards this goal, we:
Engage in interdisciplinary research and evaluation
Provide opportunities to students and trainees
Translate our research and innovations into clinical and public health practice and policy advancement
Why our work matters:
Multiple social risks (e.g. food and/or housing insecurity, transportation challenges, social isolation) and economic burden from out-of-pocket, disease-related expenses are key barriers to achieving health equity in chronic disease outcomes.
We believe that advancing innovation in addressing these social factors for people managing chronic disease can improve population health and improve health disparities.
