47th In The Nation: A Look At The Health Policy Institute Of Ohio's Health Value Dashboard

If Ohio has some of the world's pre-eminent health care institutions, why does it continue to rank among the worst in the nation in health outcomes, especially considering the amount of money we spend?

Topics include adverse childhood events and trauma, racism and health disparities, and how to move Ohio's health infrastructure and programs toward a model based on prevention.

In addition to the Health Value Dashboard, be sure to see HPIO's Equity Profiles, discussed on the show.
