Building on its original work from 2009—which helped advance a national movement to address non-medical factors that affect our health—the RWJF Commission to Build a Healthier America will release new recommendations on Monday, January 13, 2014, at 2:30 p.m. ET, during a live online event.
During the event featuring Commission Co-Chairs Mark McClellan and Alice Rivlin, Commissioners will offer recommendations covering three key areas:
- Prioritizing investments in America’s youngest children
- Encouraging leaders in different sectors to work together to create communities where healthy decisions are possible
- Challenging health professionals and health care institutions to expand their focus from treating illness to helping people live healthy lives
