Health starts in our homes, schools, workplaces, neighborhoods, and communities. Increasing attention is being focused on the economic and social conditions that shape the health of individuals and communities. In fact, where a child lives (their zip code) has a far greater impact on their health and well-being than biological influences (their genetic code) alone.
On Friday, November 18th, ICAAP will host its 7th Annual Autism, Behavior, and Complex Medical Needs (ABC) Conference at the Moraine Business Center in Palos Hills, IL. This year, the conference theme is “Zip Code vs Genetic Code: The Social Determinants of Caring for Children and Families with Special needs.” This conference will deliver valuable information about social determinants of health in order to enable providers across many disciplines to recognize and address these determinants when caring for children and families with special healthcare needs.
