The July 2020 issue of Health Affairs contains a cluster of articles on a Culture of Health, specifically how factors outside the health system -- like food, income, and work -- play a significant role in health and health equity.

On Wednesday, July 8, Health Affairs editor-in-chief Alan Weil will host an online forum featuring a selection of authors who contributed to the policy proposals and analysis in the issue and leaders in state and local governments who everyday are striving to find creative, effective, and equitable ways to deliver services during these most extraordinary and challenging times.
