Trust for America's Health Supports Recommendations from Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Commission to Build a Healthier America
Date:4/2/2009

WASHINGTON, April 2 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following is a statement from Jeff Levi, PhD, Executive Director of Trust for America's Health (TFAH) in response to the release of the new report Beyond Health Care: Directions to a Healthier America by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Commission to Build a Healthier America:

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Commission to Build a Healthier America provides an essential set of recommendation for how to improve the health of Americans by providing the opportunity to be healthier - through improving education and housing, providing smoke-free environments, increasing access to healthy foods, and ensuring safe places to live, learn, work and play.

TFAH joins the Commission in calling for more reliable data on health status, disparities, and the impact of where people live on their health to be able to give national, state, and local policymakers the information they need to make effective decisions. It is important that we understand how healthy communities are, where there are vulnerabilities, and be able to evaluate how effective strategies are for addressing gaps.
