For too many people in America, health is determined by where you were born, where you grew up and where you live now. This means that health is a function of a number of factors, and there is a widening divide between the haves and the have-nots.
The U.S. spent over $3 trillion on health care last year—nearly 20 percent of our economy. While more than half of that was spent on just five percent of patients, many others lack adequate health care.
The Atlantic brought together community leaders, health-care stakeholders, and more for a critical conversation on creating a sustainable health system that improves outcomes for all.
This event was held in conjunction with The Atlantic Festival. Find more information on the Festival here.
