Healthy People in a Healthy Economy: A Blueprint for Action in Massachusetts
Publication Date: June 30, 2009

The economic recession has only put challenges related to unhealthy behaviors -- and resulting chronic illness -- into starker relief. Healthy People in a Healthy Economy offers a blueprint for action that will help connect the missing links between health, healthy behaviors and a healthy economy.
