Social epidemiologists focus on the that may have an impact on

Social epidemiologists focus on the that may have an impact on a health issue, like Jason Sims’s asthma. As Healthy People 2030 states: 

“Social determinants of health (SDOH) have a major impact on people’s health, well-being, and quality of life. Examples of SDOH include: Safe housing, transportation, and neighborhoods; Racism, discrimination, and violence; Education, job opportunities, and income; Access to nutritious foods and physical activity opportunities; Polluted air and water; Language and literacy skills. SDOH also contribute to wide health disparities and inequities”. (para.2). 

Jason Sims’s asthma must be considered within this larger framework in order to develop more comprehensive prevention and treatment strategies.
