Root Causes is an incubator for students interested in innovative social drivers of health interventions through service, advocacy, education, and research. We organize around creating clinic-community partnerships, including running a home food delivery program for food insecure patients in partnership with Duke and Lincoln health providers and a student-network support program for rehoused community members with homelessness in Durham.
Our goal is to build opportunities for students to interact with social drivers of health and create an interdisciplinary network alliance to find solutions to pressing needs in our community.
