Social Determinants of Health: Broadly speaking, the factors that affect the chances that groups
of people have to lead long and healthy lives
General Course Summary: When whole groups of people suffer a similar fate (e.g. shorter,

**Factors beyond the individual are more important in explaining differences in health outcomes
among groups of people than lifestyle factors
