In year one, the workgroup will identify transportation services available in the community for both health and non-health related needs.

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Social Determinants of Health are described as:
the complex, integrated, and overlapping social structures and economic systems that are responsible for most health inequities. These social structures and economic systems include the social environment, physical environment, health services, and structural and societal factors. Social determinants of health are shaped by the distribution of money, power, and resources throughout local communities, nations, and the world.
