In this Tedx video, professor and physician Claire Pomeroy discusses the social determinants of health on the US health care system. With statistics and examples relevant to the Canadian context, she uses her experience as a young teen in the foster care system, as well as a pioneer in the battle against HIV/AIDS to connect poverty, education, marginalization, and neighbourhood safety to health outcomes.
