Access Education

This webinar is sponsored by Train for Change.


Preventionists have been addressing the social determinants of health (SDoH) long before that phrase was trendy! Our environmental prevention strategies and prevention programming connect different sectors and key people to create partnerships focusing on and addressing a shared goal of creating healthier individuals, families, and communities. In this session, participants will gain an overview of social determinants of health and the connection to prevention, and how existing environmental prevention strategies are effective mobilization tools for improving community health and wellness.


Jane G. Clark, MPA, CPS, holds a Master’s degree in public administration from the University of Oklahoma, is a certified prevention specialist, and recipient of the 2014 Art of Prevention Award by the Addiction Professionals of North Carolina, and the 2009 Prevention Specialist of the Year award through the Oklahoma Drug and Professional Counselor’s Association. She is an experienced presenter specializing in the field of prevention and provided the first prevention-focused webinar for NAADAC, the Association for Addiction Professionals in 2015. Over her 15-year career, she has provided numerous presentations and trainings building awareness about prevention across the continuum of care. She has held leadership roles at state, national, and international levels within the prevention network in the United States and Tribal Nations.

Learning Objectives
  • Participants will be able to describe the social determinants of health (SDoH) in relation to prevention.
  • Participants will summarize how prevention creates partnerships via SDoH.
  • Participants will be able to effectively address SDoH with existing environmental prevention strategies.
Content Level

All levels.

  • Beginning level courses introduce learners to a content area; include information about a condition, treatment method, or issue; and involve learning and comprehending content.
  • Intermediate level courses provide information that builds on knowledge practitioners with some experience already have. These courses focus on skill-building or adding knowledge, possibly following a brief overview of basic information, and involve using information in concrete situations and understanding the underlying structure of the material.
  • Advanced level courses provide content for participants who have been working in the content area and have a clear understanding of the issues. These courses cover and address the complexities involved in the work and involve synthesizing material to create new patterns or structures or evaluating material for a specific purpose.
