There is no single cause for poor U.S. health – it cuts across population groups and a wide range of health issues. While individual lifestyle choices play a part, a broad set of social and environmental factors, often beyond our control, both directly affect our health and can limit our ability to make healthy lifestyle choices.
We know most of what impacts our health happens outside a doctor's office. That's why we created Generation Public Health. We're a movement of people, organizations and communities dedicated to creating conditions where everyone can be healthy. We encourage healthy behaviors and work to make the healthy choice the easy choice. We join together to demand that health be a consideration in all public policies. And we encourage cross-sector partnerships that can help our communities better support health and wellness.
