It seems that one of the major drivers of increasing US healthcare costs is the American lifestyle, which (arguably) is skewed toward poor diet, lack of exercise, etc. So improved health education may be one of the keys to managing costs and improving heathcare “outcomes” metrics (life expectancy, infant mortality, etc.).
- What sort of heath education will improve results?
- Where (in school, in home, via media, via heath professionals (doctors/nurses)?
- Who should pay for it? How (taxes, health insurance, other?)
