A Broader Picture of Health
Despite advances in medicine, increased specialization, and the highest per capita health spending of any nation, Americans still experience the growing burden of chronic disease, unsustainable healthcare costs, and persistent inequities in health status. A chief reason for this is that medical education in the United States has traditionally limited its focus to identifying and treating diseases rather than embracing a more comprehensive view of health. Although access to high quality medical care is critically important, today we know that factors like affordable and stable housing, the quality of our schools, access to good jobs with fair pay, eating nutritious meals, engaging in physical activity, and the safety of our neighborhoods have a greater impact on health and well-being than medical services or biological factors alone. We believe in empowering our communities with the knowledge, support, and tools they need to enable everyone to live the healthiest life possible.
