Income and Poverty Workgroup
GOAL: Reduce the number of families living in poverty by 2% by 2023.
Poverty has long been recognized as a contributor to mortality and morbidity, but recent trends have caused an increased focus on the link between income and health. This group will work to implement strategies that aim to increase the economic mobility of families (for example, job training programs and Early Head Start) which may help to alleviate the negative effects of poverty thus improving health outcomes.
