New TFAH Report: Promoting Health and Cost Control

New TFAH Report: Promoting Health and Cost Control:How States Can Improve Community Health and
Well-being Through Policy Change
Trust for America's Health's (TFAH) new report, Promoting Health and Cost Control: How States Can Improve Community Health and Well-being Through Policy Change highlights 13 policies, all outside the healthcare sector, that if adopted by states can improve the health and well-being of their residents.

The report provides detailed information on its recommended policies, including descriptions, summaries of the health and economic evidence, case examples, and considerations for design and implementation. Additionally, it highlights a set of complementary policies for state officials to consider where the recommended policies alone may not be enough to achieve state and national goals for health improvement.
