As a part of a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation-funded job, my staff and I’ve coordinated a series of assignments to look at these concerns. The very first assembly”Refining the Question,’What Happens Health?” Will be held Monday, June 17, 1-5:15pm in the Weston Princeton at Princeton, NJ. David Cutler and Paula Braveman will talk about the broad assortment of variables that affect health and participate with the job ’s committee — headed by Ashish Jha and Sherry Glied — along with many others in attendance who would like to contribute. Please RSVP and see!
Additionally, please research, discuss, and reevaluate our project site , that contains a interactive (and more interactives to emerge ), approaches to take part in the job ’s themes, plus a site which we’re going to add to each week.
There’s wide consensus that the U.S. spends a lot on medical care. Some believe we’d be better served by spending more on factors beyond the health system which influence health — consequently societal determinants of health.
But we lack reliable proof to suggest at which and how much to spend. If we invest on education or about the surroundings? Home or nourishment? While there were efforts to measure the contribution of different components to health, many have important methodological limitations and don’t include more recent signs.
I’d deeply appreciate it if you’d share this invitation along with job with anybody you believe might be interested in your own section, pupils, along with other coworkers, friends, family members, neighbors, etc..
