The readings for today illustrate the ways our social position can influence our health, how often we get sick, and how likely we are to recover. Consider your own social position (salient identities might include race, student status, first language, gender identity, religion, sex, rural/urban residency, socioeconomic status, and/or others). How do you think your positioning in society has (or could in the future) affect your health or your ability to access medical care and other resources that can contribute to wellness? Have you seen social determinants of health have an impact on your friends or family? If so, how so? Share as you are comfortable.
