The Health Divide

The Health Divide blog explores the ways in which health is shaped by factors outside of the doctor’s office. We’ll look at the conditions where people live and work, and the influence of race, class and immigration status. Such factors can have an outsize role in determining individual and community well-being, influencing how long we live and the quality of our lives. We’ll highlight and hope to spur great journalism around these themes — and hope to hear of work in the journalism and policy sphere that our readers admire. We’ll also look at the health care policy landscape and efforts to close the gap between the haves and have nots when it comes to health.
