"Where we live, learn, work and play can have a greater impact on how long and how well we live than medical care." (Beyond Health Care: New Directions to a Healthier America)

When: Saturday, February 20, 2010, 8:30 a.m.-10:00 a.m. PAC

Where: Annual Meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, San Diego Convention Center, Room 6E
