Webinar: Optimizing Governmental Health and Social Spending Interactions

Tuesday, January 23, 2018 - Join the Systems for Action National Coordinating Center on Wednesday, January 24, 2018 from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. ET for a Research-in-Progress Webinar, Optimizing Governmental Health and Social Spending Interactions. The United States spends more money on healthcare than other developed countries, yet experiences significantly worse health outcomes. But, understanding healthcare spending alone is not enough. While the importance of nonmedical barriers to health, such as lack of adequate housing, education, transportation is well known, how governmental social spending affects health outcomes is less clear. This study will examine total government spending across both medical care and social service sectors in order to characterize the impact of  spending at the state and local levels on health outcomes and disparities.
