Abstract

Social determinants of health (SDH) impact clinical outcomes and are often poorly described in research trials. Using a validated tool, SDH dimensions were compared between adolescents enrolled and not enrolled into a large diabetes study. We observed that our study cohort reflected a SDH profile mirroring the eligible population.
