Social Determinant of Health Education

Education


Those who have obtained a higher level of education are often times healthier than those with little or no education. A high level of education is directly correlated to higher income and job security. With high income and job security, individuals have greater access to resources which can benefit their health. Lack of education is not the main factor in poor health, but it does create a barrier by hindering one’s ability to receive proper health care and be knowledgeable of one’s health.
