Health providers screening for the social determinants of health — information about the conditions of a person's life, from housing and transportation to access to clean air and water — is nothing new. Adding a picture of a person's financial health and stressors, like debt burden, is a new angle. It's one that Aaron E. Henry Community Health Center is asking about to help their patients more holistically. It's also the goal of the center's Health Wealth program to address financial insecurity and its direct impact on health.

Aaron E. Henry received a grant from Direct Relief's fund for health equity, made possible by generous support from the Abbvie Foundation, to improve health services across Mississippi.
