In January 2019, the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities hosted Dr. Sandro Galea as part of the NIMHD Director’s Seminar Series.  View the recorded talk, Health, Not Healthcare: What We Need to Talk About When We Talk About Health” on the NIH website.  Dr. Galea’s presentation addressed the following issues:

  • We pay great attention to healthcare in the United States; as a result, we have a mismatch between attention paid to health and our health outcomes.
  • In large part, this mismatch is because we do not pay enough attention to the forces that influence health.
  • Place, power, money, race, the past, compassion, and other forces are inevitable drivers of health, and how we need to talk about them all if we are to improve our health.
