Banking on Better Health
June 15, 2014 - Harvard International Review
For many, one of the greatest barriers to improving health is poverty. Simply put, the circumstances into which people are born can dictate their physical well-being for the rest of their lives, unless we can do something to stack the odds in their favor.
