The number one predictor of a person’s health in the United States is zip code. Taking a systemic approach to enable healthier living, instead of one that focuses on changing individual behaviors, has yielded powerful results. The systems approach to improving health requires integrating different sectors for greater impact.
In this conversation, Gregory Beck, Director of Integrated Development, speaks with Todd Phillips, Director of Social Marketing and Communication about the Building Healthy Communities project. This project is a part of the integrated development initiative at FHI 360 that seeks to build the evidence base for integrated, multisector approaches and translate that evidence into action.
