7th Annual ABC Conference

Zip Code vs. Genetic Code:

The Social Determinants of Caring for Children and Families with Special Needs


When: Friday, November 18, 2016

Where: Moraine Business and Conference Center, Palos Hills, IL


About the Conference:

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.

Furthermore, environmental factors, such as chronic stress, can actually change how a person's genetic code is expressed. The 7th Annual ABC 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.
