Addressing Social Determinants of Health Among Adolescents and Young Adults: Strategies from the Field

This study, written by The University of California — Philip R. Lee Institute for Health Policy Studies and Department of Pediatrics, Division of Adolescent and Young Adult Medicine in collaboration with ICF International, is part of a series of publications associated with a multi-year evaluation of the Mount Sinai Adolescent Health Center (MSAHC), which provides comprehensive health services to adolescents and young adults ages 10-24 in the New York City metro area.

The purpose of this Health Policy Brief is to identify innovative approaches in which the health care delivery system is working with the broader community to promote health equity and address the root causes of health disparities for adolescents and young adults (AYAs). To accomplish these goals, researchers conducted telephone interviews with stakeholders from 10 innovative programs/interventions. This includes private, non-profit foundations and government funded programs. This report includes a detailed description of the methods used for this study, followed by an extensive description of each identified strategy and a full description of each program/intervention.
