Right now, the U.S. spends more on health care than other comparable countries. What do we have to show for that spending? Numerous studies show that we live shorter lives and struggle with more health issues such as obesity, infant mortality, diabetes, heart disease and more. And this is true for Americans of all ages and socio-economic groups.

This is the defining challenge of our generation - which we, the public health community, are uniquely positioned to overcome.
