Connecting Health and EducationThis policy brief explains the social determinants of health and the connections between health and education. Oregon needs public health, health care, and education systems that work together to create the best possible conditions for young children to thrive.

The state must make connections between the transformation efforts happening in its health and education systems, within its coordinated care organizations (CCOs), and at the community level with programs like Early Works. 

Our 2019 policy recommendations for the state include ensuring CCOs target social determinants of health to change health and education outcomes.
