Health Outcomes & Health Behaviors

Underlying social drivers of health strongly influence the length and quality of our lives.
A wide range of factors influence how long and how well we live. It is well known that access to quality medical care, as well as personal health behaviors such as alcohol and tobacco use, play a role in determining the length and quality of our lives.
