Fall 2020 Edition: The Pandemic of Social Determinants of Health

The cover of the fall 2020 edition of Healthviews magazine.

Our Fall 2020 alumni magazine takes an in-depth look at how COVID-19 has unmasked the social determinants of health.  We profile some of our impressive faculty who were called upon to lead Illinois’ response to combat COVID-19 and how Chicago’s mayor selected us to co-lead the city’s contact tracing initiative. Our new Policy, Practice and Prevention Research Center aims to build capacity for policy, programs and systems designed to improve population health and address equity.

The Advancing Health section to learn about how funding from AbbVie is helping address COVID-19 among the homeless and how an alumna’s career in global health inspired her to give back.  The magazine profiles the work of our Global Health Program and the critical role of surveillance. Imagine how different the outcome might have been in the U.S. if the surveillance of COVID-19 was used for planning and evaluation, health systems response and policy development.
