Health Equity: Gail Christopher on Why Place Matters

May 9, 2016

Dr. Gail Christopher has been a crusader for better health outcomes in America, championing an idea that “place matters,” finding that the way people live in some communities puts them at a much higher risk for disease. 

We sit down to talk to her about her ideas for a healthier America. It's part of our Health Equity and Access Reporting project, in partnership with the Connecticut Health Foundation.
