The RISE Summit on Social Determinants of Health 

The Premier Meeting for Professionals in the Social Determinants of Health Space Driving Change in the Transition to Value-Based Care


The RISE Summit on Social Determinants of Health is the place for cross-sectional thought leaders to discuss actionable, tactical, and scalable solutions to social determinants of health (SDoH) challenges and achieve better outcomes for the most vulnerable populations. 

2021's conference focused on five key themes: Building effective partnerships, dealing with the digital divide, addressing the current climate, operationalizing sustainable programs, and implementing innovation. 

We are hopeful for an effective COVID-19 vaccine rollout and are optimistic that we will be able to convene in June. However, if we are unable to hold the conference in person, we will be streaming live as a virtual conference that you can attend from the comfort and safety of your home office. One way or the other, together we can continue to forge new relationships among cross-sector partners to drive effective collaboration and solve SDoH challenges.  


Stay tuned for updates on 2021's event!
