Resource Details: This webinar is a part of the fall series of the Weitzman Institute\'s Path Forward: Digital Transformation in Social Determinants of Health. Our Path Forward Track One series focuses on concrete, actionable solutions that solve for the social needs that result from adverse social determinants of health. Social isolation and loneliness are increasingly recognized as important public health issues, with the pandemic exacerbating this problem. Evidence of negative health effects is robust, and there is a great need for the expansion of effective interventions to reduce isolations and its health consequences. We were joined by an exciting group of innovators and disruptors creating powerful technology-based solutions to move from screening for social needs to solving for them.
