Where people live, learn, work, and play — the social determinants of health — have a major impact on their health risks and outcomes. Public health and legal expert Evan D. Anderson helps students at Penn Nursing understand the broader context of patients’ lives, and the laws and policies they’ll encounter in their clinical practice.

“In my teaching, I aim to demystify lawmaking processes and resulting policy so that students feel confident working to change rules that influence health.”
