We know from the recent measles outbreak that choices our neighbors make affect us. What about the choices we make as a society? How do those choices, policies really, affect our individual health?
The debates over health care in America often start and stop at issues of diet and exercise, health insurance, access to medicine, choosing your own doctor.
But health, according to Dr. Sandro Galea, isn’t going to actually occur, for individuals or societies, if we stay focused at that level of attention and care.
Health rather should be seen as how everyone lives in their neighborhoods including the opportunities that exist in education and employment.
