Nemours Children’s Hospital Promotes Health in the Community Download

29:40 Download August 7th, 2023

Dr. Kara Odom Walker, Executive Vice President, Chief Population Health Officer, Nemours Children’s Health, discussed the health system’s commitment to community health, the social determinants of health as well as food insecurity in the region.  She spoke on the surprising three areas most Delawareans reported as impacting their health and security most – stable housing, food and internet access.  Not only do these issues affect health, they impact education, employment and mental health.  She discussed their unique National Office, their voice in DC, the only children’s hospital to maintain an office to inform and lobby on behalf of health. Nemours is working to establish youth behavioral health care in emergency rooms, offer primary preventative care, create school-based Wellness Centers that address social services and health, and support the SNAP program for continuing food access for families.  For more information go to Nemours.org
