Product Description
Reduced life expectancy, worsening health outcomes, health inequity, and declining health care options...these are now realities for most Americans. However, in a country of more than 325 million people, addressing everyone's issues is challenging. How can we effect beneficial change for everyone so we all can thrive? What is the great equalizer? In this book, Daniel E. Dawes argues that political determinants of health create the social drivers...including poor environmental conditions, inadequate transportation, unsafe neighborhoods, and lack of healthy food options...that affect all other dynamics of health. By understanding these determinants, their origins, and their impact on the equitable distribution of opportunities and resources, we will be better equipped to develop and implement actionable solutions to close the health gap.
