NMU to Host Panel where Social Determinants of Health Explored February 9, 2022

Northern Michigan University Alumni Relations is partnering with the NMU Center for Rural Health for its next Northern Now digital series event. A panel of experts will discuss the social determinants of health, which are the conditions and environments that affect a wide range of health, functioning and quality-of-life outcomes and risks. Elise Bur, director of the NMU Center for Rural Health, will moderate the conversation at 7 p.m. EST Wednesday, Feb. 9.

The panelists will discuss the community health worker profession, the impact it has on the health and well-being of individuals, and particularly how community health workers are addressing area food insecurity, one of the social determinants of health.

Panelists include:

  • Shannon Lijewski, NCHW, MBA, CHCEF, principal of Everyday Life Consulting, an agency that focuses on the development and training of Community Health Workers
  • Alazar “Zar” Chroman, a local Community Health Worker with UPHS Marquette and Bell
  • Sarah Monte ‘08, outreach director for Marquette Food Co-op and NMU alumna

Alumni and friends can register here. Audience questions will be shared live with the panelists. The event is free and registration is required. Once registered, attendees will receive the link to the live stream. Learn more at nmu.edu/alumni. NMU Alumni Relations can be contacted at alumni@nmu.edu.
