How Can Americans Live Longer, Healthier Lives?  

Reports from the Institute of Medicine and other reputable sources support the assertion that even Americans who are college educated, with large incomes or wealth, white and who practice all the best health-related behaviors and have access to whatever medical care they wish, die younger than their counterparts in other developed nations. We will explore this material and suggest steps so that you and your grandchildren may live longer, healthier lives. Stephen Bezruchka was educated at Harvard, Stanford and Johns Hopkins Universities. He has worked as an emergency physician for 30 years and teaches in the School of Public Health at UW where he received the 2002 Outstanding Teacher Award and the 2008 Community Service Award.
