AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

Leverage All of Us to advance research in social determinants of health (SDH): Toward a personalized definition of SHD

Healthy People (HP) 2020 defines social determinants of health (SDH) as “conditions in the environments in which people live, learn, work, play, worship, and age that affect a wide range of health, functioning, and quality-of-life outcomes and risks.” AoU can capture this data on their 1 million+ participants and address many unanswered questions, including: Can more personalized definitions of SHD be developed that takes into the account the HP2020 definition and other SHD elements?
