About This Webinar

During the 2024 Military Family Readiness Academy, we will explore the connection between economic security and family well-being and how to address disparities and challenges.  We’ll look beyond achieving and sustaining positive personal and family financial outcomes by exploring how various conditions affect overall economic security. We’ll delve into underlying factors relating to social dynamics, environmental influences, and community characteristics. We’ll give special focus to how these factors relate to health and wellness as a foundation of economic security.  This webinar will help to empower service providers to leverage their knowledge, skills, and available resources to effectively promote health and well-being.

Learning Objectives:

  • Review the various factors, often called the “social drivers of health,” or SDOH, that influence health and well-being.
  • Promote a mindset that empowers providers to focus on understanding the root causes of health and wellness challenges and to be change agents for positive outcomes.
  • Recognize that such a mindset requires a holistic or ecological approach to understanding how underlying contextual factors, individual circumstances, institutions, and programs interact with each other.
  • Examine how various organizations and institutions are fostering efforts to encourage awareness and action to address health disparities and to promote well-being – with a special focus on the U.S. military and the Cooperative Extension system.
  • Identify various state and federal programs that can contribute to military family health and wellness, with a special focus on TRICARE, VA health benefits, Medicaid, and Medicare.
  • Consider possible new programs and policy developments relevant to military family health and well-being.
