Program Description:Well-intentioned efforts to improve the health of populations rarely succeed, usually because they have too little impact or reach too few people. Solving this problem requires thinking differently about health determinants and levers to change them.Dr. Farley’s forum program identified categories of determinants of health and discussed behavior and environmental risks to which more than 50,000 deaths annually have been attributed. He also explained approaches to help reduce behavior and environmental risks.Presentation: 55:52 (audio only)
