The Triple Win: Healthy Economy – Healthy Planet - Healthy Communities

As Congress and the new Administration prepare to invest billions of stimulus dollars in a smorgasbord of projects and programs, it would be wise to consider the environmental, health, and equity impacts of these investments in an integral way. Recent research has shown that the environment where a person lives, works, plays and eats contributes more to that person’s health than the health care he or she receives. If we breathe polluted air, live far from stores that sell fresh produce or don’t… Continue

The net effect is never cost neutral," says David Knowlton, president and CEO of the New Jersey Health Care Quality Institute and a board member of the nonprofit HealthWell Foundation.
