The Last Straw! A Board Game on the Social Determinants of Health, co-funded by the Wellesley Institute, is a fun way for players to learn how the daily life cycles and social conditions of individuals and communities can affect health and illness – think ‘Monopoly’ with social conscience and analysis. The Last Straw! shows how "macro" issues such as political climate, economic structure and environmental change, and "micro" issues, such as individual finances, education, and family dynamics, shape the health of both individuals and communities. It’s a tremendous health promotion tool and has been successfully used to facilitate learning on social determinants of health in practice in many settings.
