Social Informatics Program

The Social Informatics Program within the Duke CTSI aims to help individuals better understand how upstream social and environmental factors impact health. This is accomplished through academic research by:

  • advancing methodology at the intersection of social epidemiology, informatics, and biostatistics
  • curating novel data
  • collaborating with administrators and researchers within and outside Duke who are interested in using social drivers of health linked to electronic health record data
  • democratizing these data so that individuals within our community can understand how SDOH factors impact their health
