POLICY DAY KEYNOTE PRESENTER
Food Banks - Moving Beyond Food Distribution
The social and economic environment in which we live plays as much a role in determining our health and health behaviors as does the quality or scope of the health care we can access. In understanding the important and direct influence of our environment on our health, food insecurity is increasingly seen as a health issue rather than just an economic one. The same is true for all social determinants of health, including housing, employment, education and training opportunities, the built environment, and the policies that govern where we live, work, and play. Improving the health of Oklahomans requires action and policy change focused on these social determinants, which includes ensuring that all people have adequate, healthy food. As advocates, our job is to re-frame the conversation about health in language and policy action that addresses social determinants of health at the local, state and national levels.
