Date:4/11/2008

WASHINGTON, April 11 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following was issued today by the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies:

Who: The Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies in collaboration with California Newsreel, One Economy Corporation and the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO) will conduct a workshop entitled "The Social Determinants of Health: How and Why They are Integral to Health Equity" during the 2008 Congressional Black Caucus Spring Health Braintrust.

What: The session will explore the myriad social determinants of health that sustain health inequities throughout the continuum of life. Focusing, in part, on the groundbreaking series "Unnatural Causes: Is Inequality Making Us Sick?" this session will highlight some of the specific social determinants of health that not only create, but also exacerbate health disparities. The session will conclude with a moderated discussion featuring Mohammed Soriano-Bilal, Managing Editor of 24/7 Town Hall -- One Economy Corporation; Marcella Martinez, Deputy Director of Constituency Services -- National Association for Latino Elected and Appointed Officials and Rachel Poulain, Director of Outreach -- California Newsreel, as panelists. Gina Wood, Deputy Director of the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies Health Policy Institute will moderate.

Where: Ritz Carlton Hotel

1150 22nd Street, NW

Washington, DC 20001 Plaza Ballrooms I and II

When: Tuesday, April 15, 2008

9:30 a.m. - 11 a.m.

Why: Communities and social movements drive change, but they need support from national and local elected officials whose policies can address the larger structures that limit what communities can do. The forum will serve as a catalyst for the Congressional Black Caucus to continue the dialogue and broaden alliances "across the aisle" for the establishment of policies and legislation that address health equity.
