This year, Wellesley Institute and Upstream have partnered to bring to you a closer look at the health impacts of the policies that our national parties are putting forth. We know that social factors — where you live, age, play and work – have a big impact on your health, so we ask, what are our political leaders doing to address them?
Over the next few weeks as we count down to election day, we will be looking at social issues that impact our health and reporting on how the party platforms lineup. Our health should be considered in all policies.
Both Upstream and Wellesley Institute work to improve health through action on the social determinants. Together we ask, what are candidates saying about your health?
