Author’s Night: WELL: What We Need to Talk About When We Talk About Health

May 1, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Despite spending more on health than any other nation in the world, Americans today live shorter, less healthy lives than citizens of other rich countries. Why? Because, as Sandro Galea explains in WELL: What We Need to Talk About When We Talk About Health(Oxford – May 2019), Americans focus far too much on insurance plans, medicine, and doctors at the expense of the fundamental forces that often determine the difference between healthy and unhealthy—factors like power, money, where we live, and politics.
