WASHINGTON— Congressman Markwayne Mullin (OK-02), co-chair of the Social Determinants of Health Caucus, highlighted how his legislation would improve health outcomes during an Energy and Commerce Health Subcommittee hearing yesterday.

Mullin’s bill, H.R. 2503, the Social Determinants Accelerator Act of 2021, would help states and communities devise strategies to leverage existing programs and authorities to address all aspects of health, including food, housing, transportation, and workforce. Known as social determinants of health, a focus on these non-medical factors can improve health outcomes and wellbeing.
