Beyond Health Care: New Directions to a Healthier America

Description:

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Commission to Build a Healthier America issued 10 cross-cutting recommendations for improving the nation’s health. According to the Commission, how long and how well Americans live depends more on where we live, learn, work, and play than on medical care, which accounts for only an estimated 10 to 15 percent of preventable early deaths.
