Reimagining Children鈥檚 Health

ON THIS PAGE:

Did you know that America spends more than triple what our peer countries do on medical care, yet we have among the worst health indices of any country in the developed world?

We can change that.

America鈥檚 health care system evolved to provide one thing: medical care. And though we鈥檙e a global leader in cutting-edge medicine for complex conditions, America pays less attention to the many other things that are essential to creating and maintaining health 鈥 like nutrition, safety, housing and transportation.

The good news is that together, by supporting programs and policies that combine these factors with medical care, we can make America鈥檚 health care system more effective and less expensive.

The key is to start with children.

More than any other population, improvements in childhood health result in immediate and long-term benefits that ripple across communities and generations, helping more Americans enjoy a strong economy and a bright future.

Armed with the facts, you can help create more health for yourself, your family and your community.

I hope you鈥檒l help me and 波色单双 spread the word about what really creates health, how investing early is the key to securing America鈥檚 future, and why your voice matters.
