The Pursuit of Health

  • What Causes Health

    Some 95% of the trillions of dollars the US spends on health care goes to direct medical services and just 5% to population-wide approaches to health improvement.

  • Who Provides Care

    While we tend to think of medical professionals as the providers of health care, in reality the vast majority of all care is provided by people for themselves and their families.

  • Self-Managing Chronic Disease

    Four out of five people over the age of 65 have one or more chronic conditions.

  • Mind and Health

    Psychosocial factors play a major role in who gets sick, the course of their illness, as well as recovery.
