Social determinants of health (SDOH) are the conditions in which people grow, work, live, and age, impacting both individual and community-level health and well-being. A recent project by Georgia State University’s Adult Literacy Research Center (College of Education and Human Development), Center for Community Engagement (Perimeter), and Prevention Research Center measured barriers to health for refugees in Clarkston, GA. In addition to personal characteristics such as age and gender, refugees struggle to access resources to address social determinants, often not knowing where they are located or what services are available.
The following map provides an interactive look at resources available in the Clarkston community.
