Advancing Health and Well-Being: Using Evidence and Collaboration to Achieve Health Equity is a collection of first-person perspectives of more than 70 contributors from across disciplines, including Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Eugene Robinson and Stanford University economist Raj Chetty. With data- and narrative-driven examples from all corners of academia, research, and policy, it offers a richly practical resource for those working to improve population health and well-being.
