Inspired by the 2012 American Public Health Association (APHA) Annual Meeting, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation recently talked with a range of national thought leaders to discuss what’s needed—and what works—to achieve better health.

Today, we're featuring video interviews with Reed Tuckson, MD, Executive Vice President and Chief of Medical Affairs for UnitedHealth Group.

Tuckson spoke with us about utilizing ever-advancing data sets and engendering public trust in order to improve individual and public health.

He also discussed how patient-centered care and the social determinants of illness must be approached and considered together in order to improve public health in communities.
