2012 County Health Calculator

Posted by neocaablogger on April 30, 2012

Calculate the Impact of Education and Income on Your County’s Health

Explore the 2012 County Health Calculator App to See How Health in Your County Could Improve
Much of what influences our health happens outside the doctor’s office—in our schools, workplaces, and neighborhoods. The 2012 County Health Calculator, an interactive app developed by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and Virginia Commonwealth University’s Center on Human Needs, uses education and income to illustrate how factors outside the health care system may affect our health.

The County Health Calculator can help leaders in your state and community understand—and demonstrate—how education and income affect rates of premature death, diabetes, and the costs of diabetes care. You can customize the app for your state or county to help advocates and decision makers prioritize options to improve education and economic opportunity that may pay off in terms of lives saved, improved health, and reduced spending on avoidable illnesses. What could happen to health in your community if it took action on these issues?

You have received this email alert because you have elected to receive information from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation on: Public Health and Vulnerable Populations.
